If your manufacturer sets the proper information, and your motherboard ACPI BIOS supports it, you can use the dmidecode command. For example:

dmidecode > dmidecode.txt

You can then search dmidecode.txt for a Memory Device. For example:


Handle 0x003C
        DMI type 17, 27 bytes.
        Memory Device
                Array Handle: 0x003A
                Error Information Handle: Not Provided
                Total Width: 72 bits
                Data Width: 64 bits
                Size: 512 MB
                Form Factor: DIMM
                Set: None
                Locator: DIMM0
                Bank Locator: BANK0
                Type: DDR
                Type Detail: Synchronous
                Speed: 400 MHz (2.5 ns)
                Manufacturer: Manufacturer0
                Serial Number: SerNum0
                Asset Tag: AssetTagNum0
                Part Number: PartNum0

Hmmm... My Solaris box doesn't have dmidecode.

I usually check the manufacturer by opening the case and looking... ;)

Sorry, I didn't realize this was in the Solaris section. Solaris x86 has a patched dmidecode available, but it also has the smbios command which has the same function.
