          Name Description

          Memory Speed field

          The memory speed, in megahertz.

          Failed Memory field

          The amount of memory that is currently failing, in megabytes.

          Total Memory field

          The total amount of memory available on the server if all DIMMs are fully functional.

          Ignored Memory field

          The amount of memory currently not available for use, in megabytes.

          Effective Memory field

          The actual amount of memory currently available to the server.

          The number of DIMMs that the server cannot access.

          Redundant Memory field

          The amount of memory used for redundant storage.

          Number of Failed DIMMs field

          The number of DIMMs that have failed and cannot be used.

          Memory RAS Possible field

          Details about the RAS memory configuration that the server supports.

          Memory Configuration field

          The current memory configuration. This can be one of the following:

          • Maximum Performance—The system automatically optimizes the memory performance.
          • Mirroring—The server maintains two identical copies of the data in memory. This option effectively halves the available memory on the server, as one half is automatically reserved for mirrored copy.
          • Sparing—The system reserves some memory for use in the event a DIMM fails. If that happens, the server takes the DIMM offline and replaces it with the reserved memory. This option provides less redundancy than mirroring, but it leaves more of the memory available for programs running on the server.
          Step 5   In the Memory Details table, review the following detailed information about each DIMM:
