ps_mem - Memory profiling tool

ps_mem [OPTION]...

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.

Show help message
Show version info
Show memory consumption for the specified processes
Show swap information of each item (and Shared swap if the kernel supports SwapPss).
Show and separate memory usage entries by process rather than by program.
Show and separate memory usage entries by command line arguments and not just the program name.
Only display the total number of bytes for the selected processes
Report memory consumption every N seconds
