Hi there,

I would like to look at what programs are utilizing what memory.

:~$ free -m
              total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           768        745         22          0          5        265
-/+ buffers/cache:        474        293
Swap:         1535        165       1370

currently I see that I am riding my memory almost 100% utilized.  I want 
to know what program is using that memory and how it is allocated.  how 
can I do that?
