I'd like to know what physical disk drives are attached to an IRIX system, and the capacity (or at least geometry) of each disk. I can get the former through hinv, but that doesn't include capacity/geometry/etc. and my attempts to find this information have so far only yielded frustration.

Does anyone know the proper incantation?
