DESCRIPTION         top

       memusagestat creates a PNG file containing a graphical
       representation of the memory profiling data in the file datafile;
       that file is generated via the -d (or --data) option of

       The red line in the graph shows the heap usage (allocated memory)
       and the green line shows the stack usage.  The x-scale is either

       is specified) time.
