Survey memory consumption in Slitaz
  • tamerwizard_06tamerwizard_06 February 2011
    hi! I'm noob here. Can anyone tell me how to survey memory consumption in Slitaz? Is there an equivalently "top" command in Slitaz? Thanks!

    Yes, it's called "top" :P There is also a htop package available from the package repository.

    On my system SliTaz uses 25-30MB of RAM at boot on an HDD installed copy with 1% CPU usage @ idle. 0KB of Swap is used at boot too.

    Oh right. Stupid me. However, I have one more issue. Does the option [-n COUNT] works? It doesn't seem to work for me. For example, when I do "top -n 1", it prints the error "top: invalid number '-1' ". I don't know if this matters, but I am on a chroot. Thanks!

    Try `top -n1`.

    Interesting htop doesn't have this.

    FWIW, I let my netbook sleep all the time so memory leaks are possible, but it's ~100MB out of a 1GB for a loaded desktop, with xcompmgr, xscreensaver, and a couple of other background stuffs. My server is ~37MB out of 1.5GB ready and waiting.

    Thanks! I think it just worked on chroot, though, no process was displayed! I am not sure, I'll try it later on a TC. Thanks!

    If it helps, I have only Lxpanel, Openbox, PCMan Desktop and conky running when it boots and normally idles. I have vnstat and dbus by default. Maybe running sakis3g in the background has an effect too. I'm not using any x effects. My system is pretty custom though since I have bash as my shell, the real grep, ps, kill and several others too. Maybe it makes me run a little lighter than usual?

    PS. The top in SliTaz is provided by busybox, so like most of it's commands, it's a cut down version of the original.

    Hi, did you read the man page ? Type man top (there is a pseudo "man" command in Slitaz, not the real one, pulling info from the web), or read this online man page.
    In addition, I think that no space is necessary between the option "-n" and the number.
    While top -n 1 will produce an error (parsing this as "-1" and not "1"), top -n1 does not.

    P.S. Oops, your answer has already been replied. Please forget mine. ;-]
