| how can i parse through the top command to retrieve the 571MB
| only back from command line.
does HP-UX have anything like the pmap(1) command of
Linux and Solaris? that prints each of the memory
regions a process is using, including its size, name,
and other attributes. it should then be possible,
using a scripting language of yer choice (e.g., awk(1)),
to choose the regions you wish to count, and print the
total for those regions. (this assumes you either don't
want to count shared regions, or if you do, you don't
want to prorate or average — `pmap' gives no clew (AFAIK)
about other concurrent users or the history of a region.)
I imagine another alternative is to poke around in /proc?
also, check yer ps(1) -o... possibilities very carefully.
whilst `vsz' apparently is not what you want, one or more
_other_ metrics might be?
