Memory upgrade

Hi,
I have an rp4440 with 4 1GHz processors (I believe they are PA-8900) and have 32GB of memory on this machine. We're running 11.11.

In looking at cstm (see below) I see that there seems to be 32 1024MB chips in the cell (is that correct?). So if I were to increase my memory:

1) How can I find out if I have any open slots for additional memory?
2) If I don’t have any open slots, would I simply remove all or a portion of the 1024MB memory and replace it with 2048MB?



Basic Memory Description

Module Type: MEMORY
Total Configured Memory : 32768 MB
Page Size: 4096 Bytes

Memory interleaving is supported on this machine and is ON.

Hi,

Doesn't appear to have any open slots.

2) If I donâ t have any open slots, would I simply remove all or a portion of the 1024MB memory and replace it with 2048MB?

Yes. Memory is replaced/installed in Quads.

See this Quickspec for memory configuration and rules:

Re: Memory upgrade

Yes.. looks like you dont have any free slots to add additional memory. You need to replace some with higher module.
