How to Determine Main Memory Size in Solaris

I was looking for a way to check the memory size of a Solaris machine I am working on. I found a blog post having three commands here: I tried all three but only the following one worked for me:

# /usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag | grep Memory
Memory size: 4096 Megabytes

Here is the machine information:

# uname -a
SunOS *** 5.10 Generic_127111-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880

Yes, prtconf shows all information about devices connect to the system.

By grepping the keyword Memory you extract the line containing keyword Memory.
