Company acquisitions always create “fun” when it comes to incorporating their usable equipment into the network. The question of RAM will always get asked as small companies don’t always purchase large amounts of RAM for workstations and servers.

Simply log into the system in question and enter : cat /proc/meminfo
The first two lines will answer your memory questions.
$ cat /proc/meminfo
