    Command:

    slabtop

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           slabtop [ options ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           slabtop(1)  displays  detailed  kernel  slab  cache information in real
           time.  It displays a listing of the top caches sorted  by  one  of  the
           listed sort criteria.  It also displays a statistics header filled with
           slab layer information.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           Normal invocation of slabtop(1) does  not  require  any  options.   The
           behavior,  however,  can be fine-tuned by specifying one or more of the
           following flags:
    
           --delay=n, -d n
                  Refresh the display every n  seconds.   By  default,  slabtop(1)
                  refreshes the display every three seconds.  To exit the program,
                  hit q.
    
           --sort=S, -s S
                  Sort by S, where S is one of the sort criteria.
    
           --once, -o
                  Display the output once and then exit.
    
           --version, -V
                  Display version information and exit.
    
           --help Display usage information and exit.
    
    
    

    SORT CRITERIA

           The following are valid sort criteria used to sort the individual  slab
           caches and thereby determine what are the "top" slab caches to display.
           The default sort criteria is to sort by the number of objects ("o").
    
           The sort criteria can also be  changed  while  slabtop  is  running  by
           pressing the associated character.
    
           a:     sort by number of active objects
    
           b:     sort by objects per slab
    
           c:     sort by cache size
    
           l:     sort by number of slabs
    
           v      sort by number of active slabs
    
           accepted.
    
           Each of the valid sort characters are also accepted, to change the sort
           routine. See the section SORT CRITERIA.
    
           <SPACEBAR>
                  Refresh the screen.
    
           Q      Quit the program.
    
    
    

    FILES

    NOTES

           Currently, slabtop(1) requires a 2.4 or later kernel  (specifically,  a
           version  1.1  or later /proc/slabinfo).  Kernel 2.2 should be supported
           in the future.
    
           The slabtop statistic header is tracking how many bytes  of  slabs  are
           being used and it not a measure of physical memory. The 'Slab' field in
           the /proc/meminfo file is tracking information about used slab physical
           memory.
