  • Physical Memory

    I need to extract the amount of physical memory on my servers and have not been able to figure this out. I noted an article dated 2001 indicating it was not possible. Hopefully, things have changed in the past 7 years and this is not possible. I also have a need to extract the number of ligical (and physical) CPUS installed if possible.

    WMI has a query called Computer System that has a property TotalPhysicalMemory, and one called NumberofProcessors that will give you this information.

      Thanks for the information. However, I was looking for a way to extract from the registry as we do not have WMI on all of our systems.

        If you can find a reliable location in the registry, you should be able to create a registry template in Exporter Pro to export from that key.

          This is what I am trying to do basically. I have about 1500 pcs that I am trying to get the specs from in a export or a report like this. What are the steps to perform this action?

            Actually it looks like there isn't any location in the registry for this info.

            The only place in the registry has a complex number in it that requires a lot of calculations to get the data.

            We would have no other option besides WMI for this data.

                Select the computers in Hyena's right-hand window, right-click and choose WMI->Execute Query. Choose Computer System and click Execute Query.

                  I ran the WMI report and it only gave me a report of about 1/3 of the items that we have in the org. What would be the primary reason that it would not population the export with a listing of all the pcs. They were all imaged off the same image.

                    What exact steps did you take? Did you get any errors?

                      I used the steps layed out in your previous post. I received repeated errors that it was not getting a response from the RPC service.

                        That is a communication error of some sort. Some things that can cause it:

                        Computer is offline
                        Name resolution issues
                        Windows Firewall turned on a blocking RPC
                        Etc.
