Top 5 Memory Consuming Processes in Linux

Hi,
       Some times we need to know the most memory consuming process. In Linux you can do this with the help of following command.

[root@server2~]#ps axo %mem,command,pid | sort -nr | head -n 5
 24.2 /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_24/bin/j 2223
 9.4 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir= 2855
 1.9 /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_24/bin/j 2065
 0.8 /usr/libexec/gdmgreeter 3847
 0.2 /usr/libexec/gdm-rh-securit 3798

Here option "axo"  allow us to see Every Process in User-Defined format.


!!Enjoy Linux
