I'm trying to understand the output of vserver-stat (from vserver 0.29),
namely the value of VSZ.
The manual page says: VSZ=Number of pages of virtual memory
Well, actually VSZ is not a number of pages but something that is
counted in bytes. I got suspicious when I noticed that one of my
vservers actually had VSZ=3GB while the total system has only
1GB RAM + 1 GB swap space.
It seems that VmSize is computed by adding the vm size
of all processes running within a specific vserver:
list->VmSize_total += process->VmSize
Shared memory is counted multiple times.
Does this make sense at all?
