Your PATH is probably fine for grep, or you would get a "command not found" error..

Perhaps the issue is the space missing in your command..

grep MemTotal/proc/meminfo

should be

grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo

*note the space between MemTotal and /proc/meminfo

Yes it was the space issue between the Memtotal and /proc/meminfo.
I ran it
#grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo
and got the out put.

 Great quick help.
