how find the ram size?

i am using an ec2 instance. the amazon says that the instance has 7.5 GB of memory but in eAccelerator control panel i see that Memory usage 20.18% (6.46MB/ 32.00MB) .
is there any command that will show how much ram i have in my server?

Sounds like they may be talking about different things. meminfo will show you the amount of System Ram (MemTotal), which should be 7.5Gb, but the 32Mb sounds more like some sort of cache.

Since eAccelerator is a PHP server "accelerator" which caches your compiled PHP scripts, I'd say that the 32Mb is just the size of your eAccelerator cache.
