P.S. And running sar. Use a short sample interval is you suspect a
rapidly inflating hog. If the hog is only slowly "bloating", a slow
sample rate will do.

If it's a "memory leak", I can't recall (been years... no, decades since
I dinked with this stuff) if sar will help or not. Some sampling of
memory pool information may be needed in that case. But sar might
provide some clues in that case.
