Dear friend

Checking phyiscal memory in HP-UX using dmesg :
You can check memory in HP-UX using dmesg output. In HP-UX dmesg print HP-UX server messages and hardware information available to system during the boot time.Here is the command to check physical memory in HP-UX using dmesg output :

hp-uxdev# dmesg |grep Physical

Physical: 8388608 Kbytes, lockable: 5614168 Kbytes, available: 6461644 Kbytes



2.) Checking HP-UX memory using print_manifest :

HP-UX provides very useful command called print_manifest,i am going to use print_manifest to check how much memory is available :


hp-uxdev# print_manifest |grep â i memory

Main Memory: 8192 MB

regarding swap u can use

swapinfo -tam

thanks and regards
