You’ve been given the task of working on a firewall – but unfortunately, the old admin never took notes, there is no documentation, and the physical UTM-1 Appliance is in another country. So… what the heck is it? Here is how to find out what type of UTM-1 or Power-1 Appliance you have in the datacenter (or closet) from the command line:

Run the following command:
[Expert@yourfirewall]# /usr/sbin/dmidecode | grep "Product Name"
Product Name: P-10-00
Here is a list of the dmidecode information that I’ve found for various UTM/Power-1 appliances, and the hardware that you can expect to require if you run an open server.

Get CPU info

You can get CPU info from open servers (any Linux platform), and most models of UTM

# cat /proc/cpuinfo | egrep "MHz|model name"
model name      : Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2374 HE
cpu MHz         : 2200.088
model name      : Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2374 HE
cpu MHz         : 2200.088
model name      : Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2374 HE
cpu MHz         : 2200.088
model name      : Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2374 HE
cpu MHz         : 2200.088

Get Memory Info

You can get Memory Info on open servers (any linux platform), and most models of UTM

# cat /proc/meminfo | grep MemTotal
MemTotal:         1044220 kB

Credits and References: had most of the hardware info already. There is more info at, but I haven’t had a chance to go through it for this article, yet. If you would like to submit other info about dmidecode, Check Point doesn’t make that information available, and I’ll give you credit of course.
