Memory and CPU Utilization by a particular Process/Command in Linux/UNIX


Overview :


with help of “ps” and “pidof” commads we can determine how much cpu and memory is consumed or  used by particular process and command.


Where “ps(process status)” displays information about the current active processes.Pidof  finds  the  process id's (pids) of the named programs. It prints those id's on the standard output.


Example:1 Show how much CPU & Memory Consumed by Chrome:


# ps -p $(pidof chrome | sed 's/\s/,/g') -o %cpu,%mem,cmd


Output of above command  :


Memory and CPU utilization


Example :2 CPU and Memory Consumed By MYSQL daemon


# ps -p $(pidof mysqld | sed 's/\s/,/g') -o %cpu,%mem,cmd

Example:3 Memory & CPU utilized by Apache Daemon-HTTPD
