ps_mem: Memory profiling tool

NAME

ps_mem - Memory profiling tool

SYNOPSIS

ps_mem [-h|--help] [-s|--show-cmdline] [-p PID] [-w N]

DESCRIPTION

The ps_mem tool can determine how much RAM is 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 this help
-s --show-cmdline
Show complete program path with options
-p <pid>[,pid2,...pidN]
Only show memory usage PIDs in the specified list
-w N
Measure and show process memory every N seconds
