How did you measure the ram consumption?

Very nice article, tuning the software in that way it's nice for people that feel nostalgic with older hardware and for those (like me) that are sit in a desk attached to their company assigned desktops, running eclipse+tomcat with just 1Gb, killing every suspicious process that shows in ps to grab memory...

Back to the question, how did you do to know and compare the real memory consumption of a process? For example, to know that Mirage uses 1% more ram that GPicView

(PS: Please, excuse my english)
