Need to get hardware information on an IBM AIX server? On AIX 4.3.3 and later you can use the prtconf command.
You don’t need to be root to use this command. The output includes model, serial number, processor type, number of processors, speed of processors, 32-bit or 64-bit, memory size, firmware version, network information, paging (swap) overview, volume information and a long list of available devices.
prtconf command will only be there in AIX 4.3.3 and later but since it is just a shell script if you can find a copy of it you can easily see the commands it is calling to gather the information. The command seems to live in
/usr/sbin/prtconf. If it’s not in your path you should be able to call it directly.
