Re: Determinig Memory Modules in RHEL

Hi,

use ILO / ILO2, to get this information.

for example ILO:

Server Status
Memory Modules present at POST
DIMM 01 : 512 MB 400 MHz
DIMM 02 : 512 MB 400 MHz
DIMM 03 : 512 MB 400 MHz
DIMM 04 : 512 MB 400 MHz
DIMM 05 : not installed
DIMM 06 : not installed

for example ILO2:

System Information ==> memory

DIMM 1A : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 2C : not installed
DIMM 3A : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 4C : not installed
DIMM 5B : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 6D : not installed
DIMM 7B : 1024 MB 667 MHz
DIMM 8D : not installed

Re: Determinig Memory Modules in RHEL

hi,

that's strange, normally if we are buy a server, we made a inventory check of delivered parts from invoice, them the server will be installed. ( ILO + OS + APP + monotoring )


Hmm in your case you could open the box, and look inside how match memory bank are used,

maybe snmp could be helpfull.

Re: Determinig Memory Modules in RHEL

Hello Aamir,

Run the command
"dmidecode"

Slowly scroll down until you see something similar like:
Handle 0x1107
DMI type 17, 28 bytes.
Memory Device
Array Handle: 0x1000
Error Information Handle: Not Provided
Total Width: 72 bits
Data Width: 64 bits
Size: No Module Installed
Form Factor:
Set: 4
Locator: DIMM8
Bank Locator: Not Specified
Type:
Type Detail: Synchronous
Speed: Unknown
Manufacturer:
Serial Number:
Asset Tag:
Part Number:

Every Memory module slot of the system should be in Pairs (Set: 1, 2, 3 etc..) Therefore 2 DIMM slots should belong to a Set.

To see if there is any install RAM in the slots look at the Size. If there is a module installed, it will list the memory size.


hope this will help, thanks,
