i3wm consumes ram twice as much as openbox. this is normal?
depends, might not be i3wm consuming a lot of ram.
what is your output of below command? Last instances of the output should give you what consumes the most memory.
ps -e -o pid,vsz,comm= | sort -n -k 2
in my opinion the best command to see what consumes the most ram is:
but maybe I’m wrong.
@s7l what do you supply that command?
Yes top is good.
While in top if you press [shift < ] 4 times you get output sort left, instead of sorting by CPU it sorts by VIRT which is virtual memory size. That command does similar job.
The htop and bumblebee-status data regarding memory consumption is different, bumblebee - ~500, htop - 270.
