Determine process memory consumption ?

Hi every one

I am very new to Linux programming.

How can i determine how much memory a process is consuming in runtime at any stage.

i know this command

ps -aux --sort %mem

it only gives me the %usage of the memory. I want the memory consumption in terms of BYTES (KB, MB)

Please help.

ps -aux --sort s (see the man ps pages), in the section Sort Keys.
