What DIMM manufacture model number are the DIMMs? What “rank” are those
models? What CPU is installed? How many CPUs? What model server/chipset?
What slots were the DIMMs installed in? Higher rank DIMMs will usually show
less/half size if installed in the same “channel” with lower rank in DIMMS
before the higher rank DIMMs.
