how to find processor type in HP-UX

Hi all,
           I have never worked with HP-UX before. Could anyone please help me clarify the following,

1) How to find the processor type of HPUX whether it is :  Itanium or PA-RISC or Tru64

2) I used "uname -a" to get the OS info and i got the following

HP-UX devora1 B.11.23 U 9000/800 4260328107 unlimited-user license

What does 9000/800 refer to? How can we infer whether it is a Itanium or PA-RISC processor

I know we need to have root access to know some of this information, but do we have any other commands, which could be used at the user level to query this type of information?

Any information will be of a great help.

Thank you,
Harris.

I think the 9000 denotes PA-RISC; You can try the HP-UX related commands at

to see what info they will return as a non-root user.

Hi,

Tru64 is supporting the Alpha chip only and it was originally developed by Digital.

If you have an Alpha server and Tru64 is installed on it, you can use the uerf (Unix error/event Format) tool.

The syntax is

uerf -r 300 -R

for more info please see

Hi,

You may also look into your system log messages file for boot messages which will give you H/W config. info as well.
