RE: Memory staying in cached status -- Possible Memory Leak



Hi there --

I ran a memtest86+ scan on the box, and there were no errors reported by
application. At this point it would appear there is a resource hog that 
is causing this issue. What utility can I use to track the usage of the various
programs on the system. 

The top utility comes to mind, but what options would I use including the
ability to output the results to a file?
