There are two main scenarios for using the agentcmd utility:
You can use agentcmd in two ways: from the command line or in an agent-side script.

The agent will return output similar to the following:
SYSNAME=Solaris1 DOMAIN=myDomain.com ARCH="SunOS Solaris1 5.9 Generic_118558-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise" OSVER=5.9 NUMCPUS=4 MEMSIZE=1048576 PAGESIZE=8192 SWAPSIZE=1021624 GPGSLO=25 VXVM="" SDS="YES" HOSTID="808cf673" CPU0=" 0 - - 168 - UltraSPARC - " CPU1=" 1 - - 168 - UltraSPARC - " CPU4=" 4 - - 168 - UltraSPARC - " CPU5=" 5 - - 168 - UltraSPARC - " NET0=lo0=127.0.0.1 NET1=hme0=10.0.0.010
