Typical Memory Usage on my Gentoo-Gnome Desktop

leave a comment »

Yo all,
It’s been a long time and I’d like to start of by introducing a python script that stdouts a well-formatted table of memory usage per process. Having decided to run the script as ‘root’ on my 512MB box this is what I had in store:

clueless ~ # python ~nareshov/Desktop/Shared/Gentoo/ps_mem.py

Private + Shared = RAM used Program

After coming back to my senses I started thinking about possible loopholes in my Gentoo install. Let’s have

clueless ~ # uname -a

and

clueless ~ # emerge --info
