We determine the structure of equilibrium states for a natural dynamics on the boundary quotient diagram of \(C^*\)-algebras for a large class of right LCM semigroups. The approach is based on abstract properties of the semigroup and covers the previous case studies on \(\mathbb{N} \rtimes \mathbb{N}^\times\), dilation matrices, self-similar actions, and Baumslag–Solitar monoids. At the same time, it provides new results for large classes of right LCM semigroups, including those associated to algebraic dynamical systems.
