The terminal command would be

 system_profiler SPMemoryDataType

  • You could probably use grep or awk to pare it down, but assuming you were talking about a K1000, the custom inventory rule would be something like:

    ShellCommandTextReturn(system_profiler SPMemoryDataType)

    This shows some other options when using system_profiler: http://macstuff.beachdogs.org/blog/?p=21
    • Thanks jknox that worked! It is with the k1000, it outputs it to a script log, are you familiar with how to have it dump the results into a custom inventory field?
      • If you created a dummy software inventory item for it, it would display on the computer's inventory page under Software>Custom Inventory Field. See below. (the results will look a little different for a physical machine, that was a Mountain Lion VM.)
  • it was very informative page thanks
