ASA5512X memory

Hi guys,

Maybe someone can explain me something from "sh ver" command

Basically we have ASA cluster - two nodes and if I issue "sh version" of both of them I have slightly different output

Good one

Hardware:   ASA5512, 4096 MB RAM, CPU Clarkdale 2792 MHz, 1 CPU (2 cores)
            ASA: 2048 MB RAM, 1 CPU (1 core)

Bed one

Hardware:   ASA5512, 2048 MB RAM, CPU Clarkdale 2792 MHz, 1 CPU (2 cores)
            ASA: 2048 MB RAM, 1 CPU (1 core)

 

so first one is showing 4096 whilst second one 2048 - that's first thing

second thing could you please explain me difference between ASA5512 4096 and ASA 2048 like in this good one ? is this because there are two modules 2G each ?

Regards,

Marcin

Can you provide "show

Can you provide "show inventory" and "show module" for both units?

Hi Marvin,Show inventory

Hi Marvin,

Show inventory doesn't tell you much

I know one module is Unresponsive and second node looks similar just with working IPS module :-)

As far as I know all 5512-X

As far as I know all 5512-X should have 4 GB of RAM. There were no versions sold with only 2 GB.

During boot up the ASA 5512-X partitions memory - a 2 GB section for the ASA software and a 2 GB section for any installed module (IPS, CX or SFR (Sourcefire)).

If you had a failed DIMM I suppose it could look like the unit you show with an unresponsive module. If you can watch the console during a power cycle you may see some more information during the power on self test (POST) process.
