RAM Physical Memory usage by each Process.

Hi All,

I am trying to find the physical memory usage by each process/users.
Can you please let me know how to get the memory usage?.

Thanks,
bsraj.

tried top or prstat?
Because the memory is abstracted, you may not be able to find the physical mem itself, just overall mem used - which are you looking for?

HI,

I am trying to get the RAM usage by each process.
When i used TOP, i am able to get the total RAM used and the availabe memory as 100.. But we are having aroung 2G..
So i am trying to find how much each processes using the 2GB of memory.

Thanks,
bsraj.

Top does list processes too - in interactive mode (default behaviour of top), you can press 'o' then select what to sort by (such as 'res' or 'size') to see the big memory users.
Alternatively, prstat also shows the memory usage of the processes.

If you are using GUI, you can use SMC.

There is all information you have asked in graphical interface.

Hi,

Thanks for all the details.
Yes, i used the Top command and when i sum up the memory usage shown (such as 'res' or 'size') is becoming more than the RAM size. So i am not sure how to calculate the RAM usage be each processes..

Thanks,
Bsraj.
