I would like to know how much memory a process is utilizing. I have a system with 1G RAM when it boots up and all the processes or daemons or applications are running free -m tells me that there is aprox. 500M free. But, after a couple of days continuously running it drops down to about 8M. How do I find out which program is eating all that memory? I run top but can't really tell how much exactly each process is consuming. I know squid uses a lot of memory but, damn!
To block the porn sites downloaded the list of porn sites from net and linked the file to my squid.conf for blocking thru acl. After making this change my system works fine for 20 mins after that the mem usage become 904MB out of availabel 1 GB and the system become very slow. I am even not able to type something in terminal window.
When i remove this line from squid.conf it works fine again.
Please help...Any changes need to be done in Squid.conf???
