"I try to cover the major distros here, but (of course) my resources are limited and (except for the HP-UX example below) I've personally run and verified all of the results of the commands put out in this post today. If you crave additional information about your particular Operating System and the CPU(s) on it, check out some of our earlier posts on CPU usage, monitoring, etc, for all sorts of Unix/Linux varieties. Hopefully, you'll find some useful information in the growing archives of this sprawling morass of letters and numbers (by which I, of course, mean this blog ;)

"On to today's business! For each OS, we'll be listing the OS name, followed by a practical line of code that you should, hopefully, be able to cut-and-paste onto your own system to get your specific information. Also, for each, we'll list the actual output that my trials produced, except for the HP-UX exception already noted."
