I have a ZX6000 workstation with 16 memory slots. In the documentation it says that a maximum of 24GB of RAM can be installed in 12 slots. Does the fact that my machine has 16 slots mean that the maximum RAM that can be installed is 32GB.
Would I see much benefit in installing the additional 16GB (I guess I'm really asking 'how much memory would I need in an Alpha to be equivalent to 32GB in an Itanium box). I seem to recall that the IA64 is fairly memory hungry.
16Gb won't hurt, obviously. The real test is by watching your workload. If your page file is hardly touched (free size == file size), then more memory isn't going to help much, and you can just stay at 24G. Unless you want some bragging rights, of course!

In a zx6000/rx2600 there are ‘only’ 12, so that'd be a theoretical maximum of 48 GB (same as the rx2620, I believe).
Anyway, can anyone confirm support for 4 GB DIMMs? Because this is the first time I've seen someone make mention of it. So far I've read that the maximum DIMM size is 2 GB. (By the way, my rx2600 has 12× 2 = 24 GB.)

malmberg March 24 2018 Probably. More people hang out on the comp.os.vms newsgroup.
vaxpert March 23 2018 I have a PE42A and other Alpha system stuff for sale. I'm in So California. Any interest out there?

peteherrera February 24 2018 How much does it cost to buy a complete OpenVMS hardcopy documentation set of the latest version
prohorenko February 17 2018 Please help to obtain the license on OpenVMS
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
