    Subject/proc/*/statm, exactly what does "shared" mean?
    From
    Date

    Hello,

    I can't seem to find clear documentation about the 'share' column
    from /proc/<pid>/statm.

    Does this include pages that are shared with forked children marked as
    copy-on-write?

    Does this only reflect libraries that are dynamically loaded? What
    about shared memory segments/mmaps (ala shmat or mmmap)?

    If there is a place where I might find documentation that is more clear
    beyond the proc.txt in the kernel docs and then man pages for procfs,
    I'd welcome a pointer.

    Thanks,

    --
