I am wondering how to find out system hardware information from a running system, I know for instance pciconf(8) but what are the corresponding ones for memory, cpu etc?

more /var/run/dmesg.boot to get the info at boot time.
vmstat 5 5 will give you 5 items 5 sconds apart to show you procs, memory,
page, disks, faults and cpu info.

Thanks, that was a good start. Now, if I wanted to see more detailed info on the processor than the dmesg.boot output:

Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x673 Stepping = 3

Like cache size etc.?

You could try seeing what values are available through SNMP, if you're interested in dynamic values like memory usage, CPU usage, disk usage, etc. Manufacturing details on the CPU won't change between reboots, but there should be other ways to find that out.

dmesg.boot gives me all this data, some of which might be useful for what you're after.

CPU: Pentium II/Pentium II Xeon/Celeron (233.29-MHz 686-class CPU)
  Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0x634  Stepping = 4
