Is there a tool which can actually list all the hardware information ( ex:RAM, Harddisks, CPU...) and put it in a DB so that I can view it via web. I did a lot of search i was able to find similar tools for Windows but not for Unix...

If you're open to an agent on the monitored machines, have a look at OCS-ng at


If you want agentless solutions, Windows and Unix systems come with snmp agents that can report that kind of info and report it to tools like OpenNMS, which in turn will track it.

OCS-ng is free, and they mention an agent for for Windows, Solaris, and Linux. AIX is mentioned, but you might have to be prepared to do some tweaking. I don't have an AIX box and cannot comment on it.
