Determining RAM Info

Is there a way to get specific information on the Physical Ram configuration, primarily, am I one 4GB card, or four 1GB cards?

Thanks,
Russ

Re: Determining RAM Info


Can you take down the box? Do you have access to the console? I like to use the SRM level to look at memory:

P00>>> show memory

and/or

P00>>> show config

To get to the P00>>> prompt, shutdown -h
or enter the 'escape sequence' for
example RMC or ^]^]SMC or...
depending on the platform you have.
With a bit of luck you can quit/continue
back into the running OS.

Not having used/looked for a tru64 function
myself I'd check out SYSCHECK or CRASH or kdbx

Re: Determining RAM Info

I just checked, and syscheck does report this.
It appears to extract it from DECevent.
So the onlien command to issue is something like:
dia -i configurations | more

hth,

Re: Determining RAM Info

Thanks for that idea,

But, we're using ES45s and we were given the understanding that we should be getting away from dia, so I don't have it loaded. Is there any chance some form of the 'hwmgr' command will give this info? I tried reading up on the man pages, but no luck.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks,
Russ

Re: Determining RAM Info

Fro ES45 machines you must use Compaq Analyze (ca).
