The  commands

lsattr -El mem0 will give some output like below

size     128 Total amount of physical memory in Mbytes  False
goodsize 128 Amount of usable physical memory in Mbytes False
.
so u have 2048mb RAM, the other way to cross check it is

bootinfo -r
the output will be lke
131072 = 128mb

or, you can use:

lsattr -El sys0 -a realmem

if you like Kbytes better.  It will give output like:

realmem 4194304 Amount of usable physical memory in Kbytes False

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

ok, all of you three have an answer for me that should do the trick; as I am not at the machine concerned right now, I'll check tomorrow; the first one to repeat his comment as an answer gets the score.
