Tried to search but can't find anything. Is there an unix equivalent to right clicking / properties on My Computer to see things like memory, cpu speed etc ?
You could try http://ezix.org/project/wiki/HardwareLiSter
dmidecode should work on most *nix systems, although it takes some translating. There's also
biosdecode in the same package.
On Linux, such information can be found in
/proc/cpuinfo. It will be different on different systems.
On Solaris you would use commands such as
psrinfo -v (CPU speed)
A couple more useful Linux commands:
There are many useful tools that can help you: dmidecode, lshw, lspci, lsusb, lscpu
There are a few commands you might want to consider running, to see if they're available on your system:
Be more specific -- what do you mean by Unix? Is this a Solaris box, HPUX machine, FreeBSD, RedHat Linux? That matters.
some other commands, depending on distributions lspci, hwclock, biosdecode etc. Also, have a look at man -k hardware, man -k cpu , etc
The following link has one code which get all the info for a server/system, but it works with RHEL/Fedora/Suse/Ubuntu. I havn't used it on any of the unix boxes so please try it out and let us know. Also what its output looks like on your system.
