ps_mem Shows Per-Program Memory Usage On Linux

ps_mem is a tool for checking per-program core memory usage on Linux. It works with both Python 2 and 3, and besides Python it has no dependencies.

Unlike many other tools that report memory usage per process, ps_mem reports the RAM usage of programs. For example it shows how much RAM is used by all Chromium processes combined. The program developer notes that the ps_mem name is used for backwards compatibility, but a more accurate name would be coremem.

The displayed RAM is calculated by adding the sum of private RAM and the sum of shared RAM for a program processes.
