Nautilus High Memory Usage


hi guys

I have a Red Hat Ent 5.0 Server reporting high memory usage for Nautilus process... what is this process? I see it is like the GUI for Red Hat Ent 5.0 but why it is consuming that high memory usage?

what should I do to fix it?
is that a bug?

info:
2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:15:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

sometime else
I am just a Help Desk support and someone reported this high memory usage but using top I don't see it well maybe they killed it...or there is another way to check memory usage by processes...I mean other that top?

thanks a lot

Memory looks good to me, what makes you think there is an error with it?

like I said someone reported but I did not see any issue that's why I asked if top was enough to check memory usage?
is there a way to sort processes in top by memory?
