Can you please explain me the meaning of RES column in top(1) output:
as far as I understand from man-page, it is resident portion of the process, that is the amount of memory process takes from RAM. But I get:
Mem: 55G Active, 23G Inact, 11G Wired, 3729M Cache, 9838M Buf, 97M Free
Swap: 49G Total, 14M Used, 49G Free
PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU COMMAND
93273 username 103 52 0 141G 115G uwait 22 25:37 19.82% XXX
So I have a machine with 96GB of RAM, no swap is used and my process's resident size is 115G (more than physical memory).
It is clear I am missing something.
Thanks in advance.
