ps_mem — Memory profiling tool

Synopsis

ps_mem [OPTION]...

Description

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.

Options

-h --help
Show help message
-p PID[,PID2,...PIDN]
Show memory consumption for the specified processes
-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
Report memory consumption every N seconds
