What is a good way to find out how memory is used? Have a 6.4 box where memory is used by something but I fail to see what is using it - tried different switches to ps(1), tried the stat tools but a big chunk of memory does not show at all.

A proper tool for analyzing memory usage "live", this is a production box?

I've always been able to get what I need from top.  You can do -o res to
sort by resident memory usage, which helps.

Well, my problem is that if I add up all I *can* see in top or ps it never gets near the by now 3G plus memory shown as "Active". Maybe one gig is accounted for,
