Maximum capacity of RAM on Linux Server

We can use the following command to check the maximum RAM limit for the server, as its useful to improve the server performance.The Maximum RAM limit allows to increase the memory for sever to handle heavy process. The Maximum RAM limit server is too costly but at least 4 GB required to run server smoothly.

dmidecode -t 16

If you receive “-bash: dmidecode: command not found” error message,then install the “dmidecode” module using the yum installer using following command.

yum install dmidecode

Now execute the command to check the maximum RAM limit on your server. For example kindly check the following output for a command run on one of our dedicated server.

[root@server ~]# dmidecode -t 16
# dmidecode 2.12
SMBIOS 2.7 present.
