EFI shell shows more memory than the Manifest command

Why does EFI shell show more memory than using the manifest command in HP UX ?
This is from the EFI show system info:
Product Name: server rx3600
Active Memory : 49152 MB
Installed Memory : 49152 MB

This is from manifest:
System Hardware
Model: ia64 hp server rx3600
Main Memory: 49120 MB

Re: EFI shell shows more memory than the Manifest command

well i got this.
49152/1024=48
49120/1024=47.96875

EFI would show sum up of all the modules.
And I suppose(not sure) menifest is taking 32MB which is not becing calculated.

Thats smthing I never noticed :)

Re: EFI shell shows more memory than the Manifest command

extensible firmware interface (EFI) The Intel® developed firmware environment on Itanium-based systems that acts as an interface between operating systems and platform firmware. The interface consists of platform related information, as well as boot and runtime service calls. The PA-RISC equivalent is the boot console handler (BCH).


print_manifest An Ignite-UX command that displays a manifest of the system it is run on. It can either display the original manifest, or gather information about the current system when it runs. See print_manifest(1M).
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: EFI shell shows more memory than the Manifest command

Dear,

EFI shell shows the installed physical memory size,but manifest (OS command) memory by some some MB less,

you can check with cstm , it will show the actuall memory installed.

pls check.
