Top or ps or any number of other "show me what's running" commands
should tell you what percent of your memory is being gobbled up by
each process. I don't recall the exact magical incantation is for ps
(man is your best friend -- does that mean you're a dog?), but "top"
clearly labels one column "%MEM" or something like that.
