The Question is:
I am trying to ascertain how many memory banks a live system has (so I cannot
shut it down to the chevron), and what size and characteristics it/they may
have. Is there any OpenVMS v7.1-2 (or v7.3) command or utility that might give
me that information?
Thank you in advance. Best regards
Miguel Angel Pina
The Answer is :
Please contact your hardware support organization for assistance with
this and related questions.
In general, OpenVMS does not know about and does not concern itself with
the physical layout of Alpha system memory components. The SRM console
presents OpenVMS with physical address ranges, but not particular details
on the memory hardware. Console firmware present within various Alpha
systems can and does map the hardware memory components differently.
You did not specify the particular Alpha system(s) of interest here.
On certain newer systems, the ANALYZE/SYSTEM command SHOW GCT shows the
Galaxy Configuration Tree constructed by the console -- also see the
ANALYZE/SYSTEM command CLUE FRU, for those systems with a Field
Replaceable Unit table. (Certain platforms include memory components
in the FRU information.)
The GCT structure is not particularly docuemnted, and the contents and
interpretation can and do vary between platforms.
