sizer - Displays information about the system or kernel,
or creates a system configuration file
/usr/sbin/sizer [-atm] [-b] [-c] [-gr] [-gt] [-implver]
[-l] [-m] [-M] [-nfilename] [-p] [-pr] [-P] [-r] [-v]
[-wc] [-wk] [-wp] [-wt] [-wu]
Indicates whether an ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode)
adapter is present. Displays the name of the file from
which the running kernel was booted. Displays the CPU
type of the running CPU. Displays an ASCII string (terminated
by a line feed) that specifies the size, in pixels,
for each graphics screen that exists in the system. The
information is displayed in the following format: width x
height. For example, 1280x1024 specifies the default
graphics screen on a DEC 3000 Model 500 system. The resolutions
of all the existing screens are displayed on a
single line in the same order as the ROM ID strings that
are displayed by the -gt option. If no screens exist in
the system, then 0x0 is displayed. Displays an ASCII ROM
ID string (terminated by a line feed) for each graphics
screen that exists in the system. The ROM ID string identifies
the graphics controller for the screen. Some controllers
can manage more than one physical or logical
screen. If there are no screens in the system, then nothing
is returned. Displays the family name to which the
processor belongs. This can be EV4, EV5, EV6, or EV7.
Displays the option for the small-memory system, or zero.
Displays the running kernel's module list, if that kernel
was linked at boot time. The information displayed is a
space-separated list detailing the exact linker options
and module names used to bootstrap link the running kernel.
If the running kernel is a statically linked image,
sizer displays an empty string. Displays the names of
foreign kits that were linked into the running kernel at
boot time, including the name of the device from which
they were loaded. The device name is the one known to the
console. (For example, on a DEC 3000 system, the device
name for a CD-ROM device is dka400). If the running kernel
is a statically linked image, sizer displays an empty
string. Creates a configuration file. The -n option creates
a configuration file in /tmp/filename and a shell
script named /tmp/filename.devs that runs MAKEDEV to create
devices such as Lcam. The system should be running the
/genvmunix generic kernel to ensure that all required
devices and options are available. Note that disk and tape
device special files are created using dsfmgr(8).
You should run doconfig to build a new kernel.
Displays the number of available CPUs. Displays
the number of CPUs that are currently running on
the system. Provides information on logical partitions.
Displays the name of the root device. Displays
the operating system version string. Displays
the type of workstation console. This number
indicates whether a graphics head was chosen as the
system console at boot time, or whether the alternate
(serial interface) console was chosen. If a
graphics console was chosen, a zero (0) is returned
to standard output. If an alternate console was
chosen, a one (1) is returned to standard output.
Displays an ASCII string that identifies the workstation
keyboard if one exists in the system. For
example, LK401 specifies the default keyboard on
the DEC 3000 Model 500 system. Displays an ASCII
string that identifies the workstation pointer if
one exists in the system. For example, VSXXXAA
specifies the mouse on a DEC 3000 Model 500 system.
Displays the type of workstation display. This
number specifies each byte, which indicates a type
of display, with one byte used for each display.
The limit is zero to four displays. Displays the
workstation display units. This number specifies
the "on" bits, which indicate the display units
that exist on the system. For example, the return
number 1 indicates that one display exists, the
return number 3 indicates that two displays exist,
the return number 7 indicates that three displays
exist, and the return number 15 indicates that 4
displays exist. The limit is zero to four displays.
The sizer program reports information about the running
system, including the name of the kernel file. This program
is also used by the doconfig program to create a system
Note that if you use sizer with the -n option to create a
configuration file, it may differ from the current configuration
on your system. For example, customizations may
not appear in the output from sizer.
Commands: config(8), doconfig(8)
