Show Memory Allocation Goal

Shows the memory allocation goal on one or more persistent memory modules. Once the goal is successfully applied by the BIOS, it is no longer displayed. Use the command Show Memory Resources to view the system-wide memory resources.

ipmctl show [OPTIONS] -goal [TARGETS] [PROPERTIES]

Targets

  • -dimm [(DimmIDs)]: Restricts output to specific DIMMs by optionally supplying the DIMM target and one or more comma-separated DIMM identifiers. The default is to display all manageable persistent memory modules with memory allocation goals.

  • -socket (SocketIDs): Restricts output to the DIMMs installed on specific sockets by supplying the socket target and one or more comma-separated socket identifiers. The default is to display all sockets with memory allocation goals.

Examples

$ ipmctl show -goal
$ ipmctl show -goal -socket 1
