Hi all,

I have a basic question but I can;t seemed to find any info on it. How do I monitor the memory usage of OF solvers? I know the log file generated shows the residuals, no of iterations, clock/cpu times etc but how can I get it to show memory usage?

In particular, say for a parallel run, can I get it to show e.g. node 1 XXXMB node 2 XXX MB etc?

Thanks a lot in advance!
