How can I determine the exact specs of the RAM modules in my server while the server continues to run?
I have a server with three 2GB sticks of DDR2 running a custom linux distro based on debian. I'd like to bump this up to 4 2GB sticks and gain dual-channel mode while I'm at it. That means I need to make sure I get a new stick that's a precise match for what's already there. I'd rather not take this particular server offline to visually inspect the RAM. From prior inspection during downtime I do at least know that I have two sticks of HP branded RAM and one stick of Samsung, and I know that the server shipped stock with the Samsung and the HP was ordered later (which seems odd, but it's the way it is).
This server is cli-only (no real gui), and I can't find docs from the original purchase.
