Code:
x86     16GB
x86_64 	 1TB
it depends on your system. Is it a 32 or 64bit architecture?

That is for 32-bit hardware. For 64-bit hardware the limit is shown as 1T - it is likely you could use more if your motherboard allows it.

see notes on that page. redhat itself does not support anything, it depends on the kernel you have and the hardware you use.
see also man dmidecode:
Code:
dmidecode is a tool for dumping a computer's DMI (some say SMBIOS) table contents in a human-readable format.
...
 The DMI table doesn't only describe what the system is currently made of, it also can report the possible evolutions (such as the fastest supported CPU or  the
       maximal amount of memory supported).
so dmidecode reports 1.5 TB, so your hardware could use that, but the kernel of RH can handle max 1 TB.

What parts of the answers you got in your OTHER thread are you having problems understanding???
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175592190/

Want to know about your server? Then READ THE MANUAL. Want to know EXACTLY how many slots are used? OPEN THE SERVER AND LOOK. These are simple things...what's the problem in you doing them?
