How can I check the remote host parameters like memory size, speed of CPU, size of hard drive, number of hard disks?

I used "uname -a" and it just showed the following information:

OSF1 something.myuniversityname.edu V4.0 1229 alpha

I think it means that the OS is OSF1, version 4.0 1229, and the CPU is alpha. Nothing more about the remote host.

I wanna know more about it, any guru please?

Reporting the hardware of a particular system is, not surprisingly, varies with the OS.
Solaris carries several command to report on the aspects you're interested in. For example, prtdiag (1M) will tell you the component types installed for CPU, memory and I/O cards. uname is a SVID (System V Interface Definition) standard, but how it is implemented depends on the vendor. In other words, the output of uname will only represent a lowest common denominator of information that every hardware/OS vendor agrees on.

OSF/1 is a bit backward in such things (no dmesg, no proc addons etc.) but you can look at the boot log information in /var/adm/messages or the (supposedly) more readable version of the same information using
/usr/sbin/uerf
Hope that helps
