Is there a command that will display both disk space and memory information on the screen?  The AS400 has that, and several people here want to know if there is an equivalent on AIX.  We are learning AIX now. Thanks for your help!

Hi,
check topas and nmon.
Which vesion of AIX do you run? topas is part of AIX since long, and nmon is shipped with AIX from 5.3 TL 7 on, if I remember well. For older AIX versions get nmon here - http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/aix/library/au-analyze_aix/
topas gives you on its initial screen an overview of your system. Hit "h" and try all the different options.
nmon doesn't look very nice at first sight, but is a very powerful tool. Here too hit "h" at the initial screen to see all options.
Should you have questions about topas or nmon, please let me know so I could assist you.

You may use 'lsconf' or 'prtconf', gives a lot of information including disks, but disk space.  For disk space, you have to use 'df' or 'du'.
