ps_mem - Memory profiling tool
ps_mem [-h|--help] [-s|--show-cmdline] [-p PID] [-w N]
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.
-h --help Show help message -s --show-cmdline Show complete program path with options -p PID Show memory consumption of process with specified PID -w N Report memory consumption every N seconds
