I always wanted to know this….maximum memory used by SPLAT and GAIA

I’ve been asking this everytime I see a Check Point shirt on a body. Actually asked T3 support yesterday and they didn’t know.


YES: they use PAE  in some cases up to 16GB for firewalls and 32GB for Mgt

I’m coming closer to an answer.




We took a box and jammed 144GB into it. Loaded GAIA and booted.


We took out memory down to 64MB.

Reboot. Worked

Switched GAIA into 64-bit mode ‘ set edition default 64-bit’ command, remember ’64-bit’ and not ’64’. Jammed in memory back to 144MB.

‘top’, ‘vmstat’, ‘free’ all recognize all the memory. Now whether GAIA really uses it……The hunt continues.

UPDATE: R76 Release notes: MDM supports up to 128GB

    I wish I would have read this 2 weeks ago! Would have saved a few hours that I’ll never get back now!
