    in my SCO Open Server I can see it in the Bootfile /usr/adm/message as
    following:
    mem: total = 65140k, kernel = 11384k, user = 53756k

    With the command sar 1 10 I can see the performance of the machine.
    It test for 10 times in distance from 1 second the power of CPU-Working . Like this :
    17:57:34 %usr %sys %wio %idle (-u)
    17:57:35 0 0 0 100
    17:57:36 0 0 2 98

    PLease specify your flavor of UNIX.

    on AIX: lsattr -El sys0|grep realmem

    Commands like "top" may tell you. On a Linux system, "cat /proc/meminfo" is one way.

    But remember to articulate your question carefully: do you mean real-memory or virtual? Is there a particular motivation for your question and will simply "knowing how many SIMMs are installed" tell you that?

    Hi,

    you can use the command "prtconf", on the begening of the output you have the memory installed.

    Regards to all.
