I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking for here - do you want a command
to find how much memory your server has or are you after something else?

You should note that SLES11 SP1 is no longer supported, not even under
Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS).

Greetings Simon, I have a system that was experiencing poor performance because of a shortage of memory. I found out that it had 3G expanded memory. I issued modprobe xpram devs=3. Then went into yast hardware xpram and started the service. The performance got better but free does not show expanded memory. How can I monitor expanded memory utilization?
