    Hi,

    I would try either lspci, lshw or dmidecode installed with either apt-get or yum depending on your OS, you should be able to find details on the motherboard, ram, cpu and network cards etc..

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lspci

    Depending on the hardwhere being used, dell, super-micro, hp etc. you could install vendor driver tools for hardware like ilo, drac or ipmi or even server raid cards.

    Regards, Daniel

    If you only have SSH access to your server, you can't tell for sure whether you have a dedicated server or VPS. To determine this, you need to run a few tests. The most important test is to see how many processes are running on the server. The server is probably not a dedicated server if many processes are running. Another test you can do is to look at the CPU usage. If the CPU usage is high, the server is perhaps hosting many other applications as well.

    I think that You are wrong in both suggestions.
    Virtual servers have their virtual CPUs and you can not determine CPU activity of other possible virtual servers.
    Same for processes, you can not see processes of other virtual servers.
