How to measure maximum memory usage of XYZ application?


How to measure maximum memory usage of XYZ application in GNU/Linux systems? I have an application for processing some information from text files. Its average runtime is about 4ms so running a script which is looking for memory usage from 'ps' is not an option.
Any help is appreciated.
sorry for my english

I think if you use:

Code:
./XYZ.sh & ps aux | grep XYZ
you will get what you want, because the & sign means that ps and grep are run at the same time. Assuming it's XYZ. ;D
