Confused by dmidecode output on RAM

Postby A8725 » 2016/02/11 13:58:04

Hi,

I have a Dell PowerEdge C6100 XS23-TY3 machine and each node has 12 DIMMS, but the node I am using for a SAN is being a bit confusing. I'm trying to find out how much memory this machine can take and how much is in each slot currently without powering off the machine to physically look. Does anyone know why my machine is only displaying 9 ports instead of 12? And how much my max is?

Code: Select all

[root@san ~]# dmidecode -t 16
# dmidecode 2.11
SMBIOS 2.6 present.
