SubjectRe: Need assistance in determining memory usage
In /proc there are a bunch of directories that are numbered.
These numbers correspond to the PID of each process.
In each of these directories is a file called "status".

This file contains most all the information you need just
in case you don't like `ps` or `top`.

Name: init
State: S (sleeping)
Tgid: 1
Pid: 1
PPid: 0
TracerPid: 0
Uid: 0 0 0 0
Gid: 0 0 0 0
FDSize: 32
VmSize: 224 kB Total virtual memory accessed so far.
VmLck: 0 kB Locks held
VmRSS: 148 kB Resident virtual memory (not swapped)
VmData: 28 kB Data virtual memory
VmStk: 4 kB Stack virtual memory
VmExe: 184 kB Executable virtual memory
VmLib: 0 kB Shared library
