Win32_PhysicalMemoryArray powershell sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).

ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself. The Win32_PhysicalMemoryArray WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PhysicalMemoryArray WMI class represents details about the computer system`s physical memory. This includes the number of memory devices, memory capacity available, and memory type (for example, system memory or video memory).

Sample Code

$computer = "LocalHost" 
$namespace = "root\CIMV2" 
Get-WmiObject -class Win32_PhysicalMemoryArray -computername $computer -namespace $namespace
