Hi all,

         Based on documentation on this topics >> Platform Specifications  Are there anyway to show DRAM (such as PA-5060 is 29 GB) on CLI?

Hello nfbu2,

29GB of memory on the PA-5060 is made up of 3 kinds of memory, not all of which may show up in the CLI (if that’s possible)

>>>>  24GB on the DP’s (8GB per DP, total 3 DP)

>>>> 4GB on the Management Plane

>>>> 1GB on the dual core monitoring CPU

Similarly, while you will upgrade a PA-500 memory. Once you will open the box, you will get 2 memory slots. One will be attached with J-6  and another with J-7. We only change the memory, which is attached with J-6 CHIP. Apart from management-plane memory all other types of memory is inbuilt with system.

We cannot see all memory through CLI command.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hello Nfbu2,

The PA 5060 is having 4 GB of DRAM on the management-plane. You can verify it through CLI command: > show system resources

Mem: The DRAM memory ( ~ 4 GB)

Swap: Swap memory taken from SSD

Reference Doc for more info: How to Interpret: show system resources

Hope this helps.

Hi Hulk

          thank for your information. But in https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-1435 said that PA-5060 have 29 GB of DRAM. Is the rest of it is on Dataplane? if yes. Can we do the same thing to show this information.

Best Regards

Hello nfbu2,

As per my knowledge, PA 5060 firewall is having 4 BG of RMA and 120/240 GB SSD drive on it. The Platform spec list gives some interesting info. Please give me some time, i will get in touch with document owner and give you an update.

Thanks

Hi HULK,

I could not find the way to find 1GB RAM on the dual core monitoring CPU.

Could you please help?

Hello Warm,

It is inbuilt with hardware and can not be accessible through CLI.

Thanks
