Physical memory calculation

Below is Physical Memory result :

Code:
-bash-3.00$ prtconf | grep "Memory size"
Memory size: 36854 Megabytes
-bash-3.00$ vmstat 1 2 | tail -1
 0 0 0 28220616 1318888 15 143 0 0 0  0  0 253 2 15  0 5215 14989 5917 7  0 93

and the script i have to calculate this in Percentage is :
Code:
#!/bin/sh
totalmb=`/usr/sbin/prtconf | grep "Memory size" | awk '{print $3}'`
freemb=`vmstat 1 2 | tail -1 | awk '{print $5/1024}'`
usedmb=`/usr/bin/echo $totalmb-$freemb|/usr/bin/bc`
percentage=`echo $usedmb*100/$totalmb | bc`
echo "Percentage="$percentage"%"

Code:
-bash-3.00$ sh PhysicalMemory.sh
Percentage=96%

Can you please help me to know whether the script i am using is really showing UsedPhysicalMemory in Percentage?


Or may i have one single cmd line to see the Used/Free Physical Memory in Solaris?
Code:
-bash-3.00$ uname -a
SunOS localhost 5.10 Generic_142910-17 i86pc i386 i86pc

As customer is showing result in :

Customer Saying Physical Memory used is max 35 % Used, but from the logic i am calculating its 96% Used

You aren't measuring the same thing. You customer is only looking to RAM used by processes in the current zone, while your command is not detailed enough to figure out what is using the RAM.

To have a clearer view about how the RAM is used, run this command from the global zone:

Code:
echo ::memstat | mdb -k

Thanks, But wanted to know does my code shared giving idea that this total amount of Physical memory is being used?
# 4  
That depends on how you define used memory. If you use ZFS, file system cache memory will be reported as used by your command but if you use UFS, it won't. You really should run the command I suggested and post its output to figure it out.
