[edit] Description

sp-smaps-measure installs an utility that can be invoked to take a snapshot of /proc/*PID*/smaps files. The smaps files contain very detailed information about processes' memory consumption.

[edit] Packages

source: sp-smaps

binary: sp-smaps-measure

[edit] Usage Examples

Writes output similar to `head -2000 /proc/[1-9]*/smaps` to logfile after_boot.cap.

# sp_smaps_snapshot > after_boot.cap

It is possible to request realtime priority with the --realtime option. This requires that the utility is run as superuser.
