memconf - 23-Jan-2001 V1.35.1 - perl script that displays memory modules installed in a Sun system. Listed in the SunManagers FAQ.

Usage: memconf [ -v | -D | -h ] [ explorer_dir ]
                 -v            verbose mode
                 -D            send results to memconf maintainer
                 -h            print help
                 explorer_dir  Sun Explorer output directory
memconf reports the size of each SIMM/DIMM memory module installed in a system. It also reports the system type and any empty memory sockets. In verbose mode, it also reports:

If memconf does not completely recognize a system, then please send the output of '/usr/sbin/prtconf -pv' on Solaris 2.X or later, or '/usr/etc/devinfo -pv' on Solaris 1.X and '/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag -v' if available to tschmidt@micron.com so that memconf can be enhanced to properly recognize it. You can do this using the 'memconf -D' command. If the unrecognized system is a Sun clone, please also send any hardware documentation on the memory layout that you may have.

memconf is Y2K compliant. There are no date calls in the program. Your Operating System or Perl version may not be Y2K compliant.
