You want "hp scripting toolkit user guide" and search for HWQUERY inside it.
It is merely data extraction tool. How you aggregate/present it is up to programmer in you

most of the hardware information is available using dmidecode. for example,

sudo dmidecode | sed -n '/^Memory/,/^$/ p' | grep Size
      Size: 8192 MB
      Size: 8192 MB
      Range Size: 16 GB

have a look at this nice doc in order to better understand the information it provides and select what you need without playing with sed like i did
http://cavepopo.hd.free.fr/wordpress/linux/dmidecode-practical-examples-and-tips/

some is available in /proc (but afaik all that is available in /proc is available in dmidecode)

i'm unsure but you may try lshw and/or hwinfo as well (lshw might not be available on redhat, hwinfo likely needs to be installed)

--

the raid information should be available using mdadm

--

i'd suggest you start from the information available there, and post about what you don't manage to retrieve

feel free to post about what you don't manage to retrieve

for example i'm unsure about the number of U, the HBA card, ... some info such as the power supply stuff should be available using commands provided by the vendor and/or snmp
