Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

Hi Senthil,


check following commands...


# dmesg |grep -i Physical

#print_manifest |grep -i memory

Check with sam also as,

sam -> performance monitor -> system properties -> memory

# echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog"|cstm

this will give out the memory arrangment and slots in the board.

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

Senthil,

Use #print_manifest

(/opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest)

Check this link as well http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90772/ch05s06.html

Attached are some useful docs..

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

the following command also can be used:

dmesg | grep -E -i 'memory|physical'

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

If lot of diagnostic messages are being logged to system buffer, the dmesg wont be able to show your the Physical memory

Better way as suggest above is print_manifest or machinfo from the OS.

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

Hi,

Many ways you can find the physical memory details. Fews are,

# echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm | grep 'Total Configured'
# echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm | awk '/Total Configured/{print $5}'|head -1
# /opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest |grep i memory
# dmesg |grep -i physical
# grep Phys /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

Hi,

1). Through SAM
#sam> Press "Return" to continue...> Performance Monitors> System Properties> Memory.

2). You can get it through kmeminfo (if kmeminfo is installed).
#cd /tmp
#./kmeminfo


Thnx...Farhan

Hi,
# To get RAM size in KB
perl -e 'local($PSTAT,$PSTAT_STATIC,$mem_info,$PSTAT_STRUCT)=(239,2,"\0"x120,"LI4L");
syscall($PSTAT,$PSTAT_STATIC,$mem_info,length($mem_info),1,0);
print "RAM=".int((unpack($PSTAT_STRUCT,$mem_info))[4]*((unpack($PSTAT_STRUCT,$mem_info))[5])/(1024*1024))."\n";'

You purchase glance separately.

(Try another of the above suggestions, except for dmesg.)

Re: How to view the memory size (RAM size)

I manage a number of legacy HP-UX systems from HP-UX 9 to HP-UX 11 and not all have all toos/commands.

Thus I prefer something which works on all flavors.

dmesg does not give the answer if the system was up a long time and the buffer does not hold the boot information anymore. Kernel tools are different on different versions and support tools are often not installed.

Currently I use a combination of dmesg and syslog lookup and check for the Physical memory lines, which gives me a result in most cases.

 

   [[ -d /usr/adm        ]] && SYSLOGdir=/usr/adm
   [[ -d /var/adm/syslog ]] && SYSLOGdir=/var/adm/syslog
         dmesg | cat - $SYSLOGdir/*syslog* \
               | grep Physical: \
               | sed -e 's/.*ical: *//' -e 's/ .*//' \
               | sort -u | awk '{printf( "%d MB\n", $0/1024 )}'
