Try the command "/usr/sbin/prtconf".

You might also be interested in installing the "memconf"
program which displays RAM memory info in a more useful form:

You can also look in /var/adm for a series of files with names matching the pattern --> messages.*

Examination of one or more of these files (which are a record of console messages, starting from boot time) will find a line similar to:

Mar 3  08:00:01 bester unix: [ID 435435 kern.info] avail mem 125595648

This shows the system RAM in bytes (128 MB in this particular case). You can use grep or a similar utility to find the file(s) and line(s) containing this information.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is to:
