    How much ram


    Hi guys..

    can somebody please just clear up a mad moment and tell me how much ram is installed on this machine? I'm told there is IGB in there, but I could swear that's reporting less..

    Code:
    [clacy@minuteshake clacy]$ vmstat
     procs      memory      page                    disks     faults      cpu
     r b w     avm    fre  flt  re  pi  po  fr  sr ad0 md0   in   sy  cs us sy id
     0 0 0   41732  39196   67   8   2   0 264 176   0   0  332 1453 112  1  1 98

    cheers

    Not sure if you can tell the total amount of memory from vmstat's output.

    Try "dmesg" instead.

    a quick google shows that `sysctl hw.physmem` will tell you
