View kernel params from command line

Is there a way to view kernel params from the command line as a regular user? I have HP-UX 11.31.

It seems kctune can do this, but I can't find it, what path is it usually installed in?

Re: View kernel params from command line

Thanks everyone. /usr/sbin wasn't in my path, and I was looking around in /opt and other places instead of the obvious ones :)
