Can I see how many SIMMS are installed w/o opening the box?


I need to know how many SIMMS are in 8 machines. All have 1.5 GB RAM, but some have 3 SIMMS, some have 4 SIMMS. Is there a way to find out without opening each one?

They are all Intel P3's running RH9.

Thanks

Try in a root terminal:

dmidecode

This should dump the bios information.

That does it! Thanks!

For others who might read this (including future me), a quick grep helps get right to the info I needed:

dmidecode | grep Installed

Thanks again!
