Might be showing off my lack of unix admin knowledge here but using 
'top', it's the value of the 'virt' column - ie. the biggest possible 
process size if the whole thing was resident.  I've been using it to 
work out how many clients I should limit apache to, but looking at it 
the 'res' figure never seems to get anywhere near the 'virt' figure.  
Time to rewrite my assumptions I think!
