How to find HP-UX system details?

Here is the coolest thing about HP-UX b11.11. With this script/utililty, we can find lots of information about the system.. like:
  1. Installed softwares
  2. Installed hardware
  3. System parameters (kernel)
  4. Disk layout
  5. filesystem and volume information
  6. LVM/JFS information
  7. RAM/swap and other details.

The only thing is it doesn't come with all versions/releases of HP-UX. But if it is available, then it is extremely useful utility.
