I'm on B11.11  HP-UX  RP3440 hardware.

How do I find out what's
a) the current avail slots
b) max memory that it can support
c) what's the max (in GB) per DIMM that's available for sale

d) lastly what's the steps to take to add additional memory
    or swap out with bigger DIMMs

    I think STM (xstm, mstm, csmt) is the tool of choice here.

    Here is a thread on that topic:

    As for upgrading - here is the 3440 spec guide:

    and here is an (unfortunately rather old) upgrade guide:

    What's the link / url to download  
    STM (xstm, mstm, csmt) ?

    If I don't have those tools installed, would "print_manifest" command
