Re: Memory on Intanium servers

Hi

You may have problems with different type of memories

To check memories connect to MP
then type CM
then type DF

You can see DIMM numbers and installed memories

Re: Memory on Intanium servers

Hi Eltorito

What type of server do you have rx...?

And where did you buy RAM modules? I think this is not HP brand RAMs

Re: Memory on Intanium servers

Hi Eltorito

DF is not used for system hardware monitoring or checking DIMM problems in your case

You should see System Event Logs or OS logs to monitor hw.

Your DIMM part numbers does not look like HP Part Numbers. You can check which DIMM modules compatible with your system from following url
http://partsurfer.hp.com/cgi-bin/spi/main?sel_flg=modsrch&template=main&cpric=&prodsrch=RX4640&submit.x=0&submit.y=0

you should also ask to your sales consultant

Re: Memory on Intanium servers

You might have zx2 chipset based rx4640 which is compliant with JEDEC DDR2 standard.

Try "dmidecode" command which will give you the information you are looking for.


There is a penalty of memory underclock if you mix the memory with different speeds which mean under-utilizing the hardware and compromise the memory IO performance.
