Subject[PATCH 1/11] maps3: add proportional set size accounting in smaps
Date
From: Fengguang Wu <wfg@mail.ustc.edu.cn>

The "proportional set size" (PSS) of a process is the count of pages it has
in memory, where each page is divided by the number of processes sharing
it. So if a process has 1000 pages all to itself, and 1000 shared with one
other process, its PSS will be 1500.

- lwn.net: "ELC: How much memory are applications really using?"

The PSS proposed by Matt Mackall is a very nice metic for measuring an
process's memory footprint. So collect and export it via
/proc/<pid>/smaps.

Matt Mackall's pagemap/kpagemap and John Berthels's exmap can also do the
job. They are comprehensive tools. But for PSS, let's do it in the simple
way.
