rx4640 main memory info

hi,
How can I read the SPD info of the memory modules installed on my RX4640 server?
It is said that that info can be found via sysfs which is like "/sys/bus/i2c/drivers/eeprom/", but nothing like that appear on my box.
I also tried to install lm_sensors (linux kernel 2.6.9), I guess this would help to find out the SPD device, but no sensors detected at last.
I would like some detailed info about the memory such as bank, timing, etc.. Any document about that would also be appreciated.
Thanks.

Re: rx4640 main memory info

Have you tried "lshw" or "dmidecode"?

I would try them and see what information it can provide about memory SPD on this box.

The only output of "lshw" about the memory is
*-memory
description: System memory
physical id: 0
size: 15GiB

While "dmidecode" is better, it can find out there are 32 DIMMs, each one is 512M in size. I grab one of the DIMM's info below. The other 31 are look the same.

Handle 0x0013, DMI type 17, 27 bytes

Still there is no bank and timing info.
