Display the core memory used per program (not per process)
In detail it reports:
sum (private RAM for program processes) +
sum (shared RAM for program processes)
The shared RAM is problematic to calculate, and the tool automatically selects the most accurate method available for the running kernel.
- -h --help
Show help message
Show version info
- -p PID[,PID2,...PIDN]
Show memory consumption for the specified processes
- -S --swap
Show swap information of each item (and Shared swap if the kernel supports SwapPss).
- -d --discriminate-by-pid
Show and separate memory usage entries by process rather than by program.
- -s --split-args
Show and separate memory usage entries by command line arguments and not just the program name.
- -t --total
Only display the total number of bytes for the selected processes
- -w N
