Hi, how do I see how much memory in an ESXi 4.1, 5.0 and 5.5 ESXi host from an SSH console connection.

The only thing I can find on the web is "dmidecode|less" but that doesn't yield any results.

You could use the command esxtop.

HOW TO:  Performance Monitor vSphere 4.x or 5.0

start esxtop, and hit the letter "m"

finding memory how much memory with esxtop
this shows 96GB, but also other relevant stuff, numa, and other information.

also see here, because dmidecode|less is not available in 5.0, so you can use

smbiosDump - this shows the actual values of DIMMs in Dimm Slots!

and also here

you can use cim-diagnostic.sh > mem.out

(but this does not work on all Vendor Servers!)
