Unhappy How to check memory/RAm with Linux Redhat


This question may have posted a million times ?? What is the command to check memory/RAM installed?? I'm actually running Mitel Networks SME server 5.6 which is largely RedHat linux. During bootup I don't see it posted during the BIOS check.

Do you just want to see how much you have?
If you have this enabled in your kernel you can use cat /proc/meminfo ... if not just do a free -m ... both give you stats about your ram.

EDIT: dang, beat me to it
