How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

inventory - have it show # of memory slots on computers & what is in each slot

inventory - have it show # of memory slots on computers & what is in each slot. Have the agent gather that info and report it too "Devices" under "Inventory Information".
Other programs do this, surprised Kace doesn't. This is very helpful when upgrading memory on computers.

    You can use a Custom Inventory Rule to accomplish this.

    I`v been using it for a while now, works like a charm.

    ShellCommandTextReturn(powershell.exe -NoLogo -NonInteractive -NoProfile -Command "Get-WmiObject -Class win32_PhysicalMemoryArray -namespace root\CIMV2| foreach ($_) {'Total Number of DIMM Slots: ' + $_.MemoryDevices } ; Get-WmiObject -Class win32_PhysicalMemory -namespace root\CIMV2 | foreach ($_) { 'Memory Installed: ' + $_.DeviceLocator + ' | Memory Size: ' + ($_.Capacity / 1GB) + ' GB' }")

    We have needed this function as well when doing RAM upgrades on our fleet of desktops and laptops. In fact, just last week we could have used it instead of having to develop a script to go collect that info.

    This is very important for us... for example, if we need to check amount of memory on a PC and it shows 4gb, and we want to upgrade it to 8gb, we need to know how many slots the MB has and how much memory is in each one so we know what we need to purchase to add or replace what is there, etc... most inventory systems show us this such as OCS. This Kace doesn't show this, then we have to assume only 2 slots and that they are both filled which causes us more money to purchase total memory replacement. -Tony Davis
