Hi All,

I need a command that will accurately diplay the installed memory (RAM) on our SunOS abc 5.8 Generic_108528-27 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880.

dmesg doesn't display memory / cpu etc.

I've tried iostat -En, which reports that the server has 32768 MB RAM.

Am I correct in my calculation that this translates to 32GB?

If so, I'm sure we don't have 32GB of RAM on that server.

Please advise.
