RSS and VSIZE using ps
I have an app where I:
1) consume memory
2) release said memory
3) and then consume memory again.
The VSIZE does what I expect. It grows until the release. Stays constant whilst all the memory is released. Doesn't grow when I consume again (until a point where I have consumed more memory than the first run).
RSS grows throughout the whole experiment.
Why does RSS keep growing?
Sorry guys I should have added this is using ps command on linux.
ps -eo pid,ppid,rss,vsize,pcpu,pmem,cmd
