Sometimes it is not comfortable to see meminfo in kilobytes when you have several gigs of ram. In linux, it looks like.
And here's what it looks like on mac os x
Is there a way to display meminfo in linux top in terabytes, gigabytes and megabytes?
When in top, typing capital "E" cycles through different memory units (KiB, MiB, GiB, etc., which are different from kB, MB and GB) in the total memory info.
While lower-case "e" does the same individual process lines.
From the manpage.
2c. MEMORY Usage This portion consists of two lines which may express values in kibibytes (KiB) through exbibytes (EiB) depending on the scaling factor enforced with the 'E' interactive command.
