The output for the show process memory command displays the memory usage statistics running on CP part (sysd) of the system. The sysd is an aggregate task that handles all the tasks running on S-Series’ CP.
For the S-Series, the output of the show memory command and this command differ based on which Dell OS processes are counted.
  • In the show memory output, the memory size is equal to the size of the application processes.
  • In the output of this command, the memory size is equal to the size of the application processes plus the size of the system processes.
