Re: memory is not visible at OS level.

Hi Pankaj

There is no issues with your system. The 8G you mentioned is the memory used by "user processes" and not the physical memory size.

top reports the virtual and real memory "used by user processes(with the amount of memory considered 'active' in paranthesis) and the amount of free memory".

If you want to see the physical memory size from OS, use one of the following.

ia_64(Integrity Servers)
#machinfo

PA-RISC & ia_64 servers
#print_manifest (please find the location and execute, normally under /opt/ignite/bin)
