How to see Flash memory size from show version.

Unanswered Question
Feb 24th, 2010

According to my Cisco 3725 show version,
following message is shown.

DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity disabled.
55K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
125952K bytes of ATA System CompactFlash (Read/Write)
31360K bytes of ATA Slot0 CompactFlash (Read/Write)
Configuration register is 0x2102

-Does this mean that 128Mbyte+32Mbyte=160Mbyte Flash memory is available ?
System CompactFlash means internal on-board Flash memory ?
Slot0 Compactflash means external attachable Flash memory ?

I can't type "show flash" because of some reason.

I have this problem too.

Errr ... not really.

125952K bytes of ATA System CompactFlash (Read/Write)   < --- Means that you have >128mb INTERNAL CF.
31360K bytes of ATA Slot0 CompactFlash (Read/Write)     < --- Means you have <32mb EXTERNAL CF.

Hi Paolo,

I'm not saying you were incorrect.  I knew you were right but I was just being pedantic and broke down the figures.

Mea culpa.

I am not saying you were incorrect either

I'ts 1:30 am here and I could misjudge flash for a wurstel.

Good night...
