How do I find out the maximum RAM supported by the Dell / HP / IBM / Oracle / Sun / Intel / AMD server under Linux / Unix / HP-UX / FreeBSD / Solaris operating systems without rebooting the server or opening server case (cabinet)?

Most modern server supports 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or more RAM and has 4 or more DIMM slots. To find out what is the maximum system can support type the following command as root user:
# dmidecode -t 16

dmidecode -t 17 shows what’s installed
