[SOLVED] 2.2.5 shows wrong amount of memory?



  • I reinstalled 2.2.5 (full install) and now a big chunk of my 8GB of memory is missing.

    $ dmesg | grep memory
    real memory  = 8589934592 (8192 MB)
    avail memory = 1887203328 (1799 MB)

    Dashboard: 10% of 1862 MB

    $ sysctl hw.physmem
    hw.physmem: 1952141312          <–------  :o :o

    AMD64 version.

    Any thoughts?  I searched but maybe I missed it?!>

    I don't think you are running amd64 version any more.

  • Reset BIOS to default, changed relevant settings and it's correct now.  Not sure what fixed it but it's fixed.



  • Was about to reply that's what your BIOS is reporting, something not right there. Might want to check for a BIOS update as that seems like some kind of bug with it. Glad you found a workaround at least.

    It was fine until I reinstalled everything…..but I had been tinkering with BIOS settings trying to get the watchdog timeouts to stop.

    This is the first BIOS for this board and I'm hoping SuperMicro comes up with a fix for my watchdog timeouts.  Sure seems to be a hardware issue (details in the hardware forum thread).
