How to find how much memory consumed by Linux Kernel in my system


Hi,
I have a simple question.

Linux Node1 2.6.10-telco-1.46-mckinley-smp #1 SMP Fri May 30 18:29:43 UTC 2008 ia64 GNU/Linux


1. How to determine what is the total amount of kernel memory consumed in my IA64 LINUX System ?

2. How to determine per process level how much kernel memory is consumed(or it does make sense as kernel works for all process , and there would mutual memory used for all process)

Thanks
Krupa

But top shows only the resources used by the processes
not by the kernel.
