I think I did not read enough of the context, but vmstat and top can track
memory usage as a general thing.

The backtrace should be part of the crash dump that is written to the
(directly connected, non-encrypted, non-USB) swap device.  "call doadump"
at the debugger prompt (even typing blind) is supposed to make sure
there's a dump taken.

With respect to the screenshot, you should be able to post the image on an
external site and send a link to the list, at least.
