       gmemusage - graphically display memory used by running processes.


       gmemusage [ options ]


       Gmemusage   is  modelled  after  the  program  of  the  same  name  on  Silicon  Graphics'
       workstations.  Gmemusage graphically displays the contents of memory on a running  system,
       broken  up  by individual processes. The display is a stacked bar graph with the height of
       an area representing the RSS size of the corresponding process. In addition,  the  process
       name, number of processes with that name and the size (in kilobytes) are shown.

       Processes which take up less memory than a (user-specifiable) threshhold are merged into a
       single area on the graph. Multiple processes with the same name are merged into  a  single

       While running, gmemusage accepts the following keys:

       Q or q
            Exit the program.

       Up Arrow
            Increase the minimum threshhold by 10 kb.

       Down Arrow
            Decrease the minimum threshhold by 10 kb.

       Other keys are (not-so-silently!) ignored.

       -threshhold kb
            Threshhold below which small processes are merged (400 kb)

       -ncolors #colors
            How many different colors to use (3)
