System Information

Some flavours of Unix have commands or files that show useful system information. Under SunOS/Solaris, try sysinfo, under SGI IRIX try hinv, and under Linux look at the contents of /proc/cpuinfo. Information available usually includes total memory, processor speed, cache size, attached devices, etc.
