I just wondering what is the difference between RES, SHR, and VIRT.
1) The VIRT always seems to be higher. Is this using the paging file system. (virtual memory on the harddisk, the swap memory)
2) Is the RES memory the actual physical RAM memory?
3) Is shared memory sharing memory with other processes?
4) Just a final question. As I am running on a HP Mini 210, memory and CPU is a resource I don't have a abundence of. So if was to compare for example 2 difference browsers i.e. firefox and midora. What should I brench mark between to 2 to find what one uses less resources?
Many thanks for any suggestions,
