I am trying to see whether a process has mem leak or not. I am suing
top utility program to do so. After the program is done with load test,
I cannot see that the program size is not graduately dropping as I
expect. I understand that it may take sometime before OS gets back the
heap memory, but is it a good way to monitor mem leak through top?
