Subject Re: How are 'PHYSICAL_MEMORY_BYTES' and 'VIRTUAL_MEMORY_BYTES' calculated?
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 13:47:42 GMT
I think they are cumulative but per task.

Physical memory bytes
(PHYSICAL_MEMORY_BYTES)
The physical memory being used by a task in bytes, as reported by
/proc/meminfo.
Virtual memory bytes
(VIRTUAL_MEMORY_BYTES)
The virtual memory being used by a task in bytes, as reported by
/proc/meminfo.

This is from the Definitive Guide book. Page 260.

Regards,
Shhab
