prtconf on Solaris is used to pick up the amount of RAM installed.

For AIX your script should include this:

bootinfo -r
vmstat 1 2
pstat -s

which runs the bootinfo tool to determine the amount of RAM installed,
vmstat to determine the amount of free RAM, and pstat to determine the
swap statistics. (I don't know one bit about AIX, but this is what the
bb-memory add-on uses).

If the other information provided by "bootinfo" might be useful, you
can leave out the "-r" option as long as the RAM size is included in
the output.
