Viewing RAM Usage Data (procstats)

In this document

    The procstats tool is used to analyze application memory usage over time (versus at a particular snapshot in time, like meminfo). Its state dump displays statistics about every application’s runtime, proportional set size (PSS) and unique set size (USS).

    Input

    To get application memory usage stats for the last three hours, in human-readable form, run the following command:

    $ adb shell dumpsys procstats --hours 3
    

    Output

    As can be seen in the example below, percentages display what percentage of time the application was running, while the numbers following show PSS and USS as minPSS-avgPSS-maxPSS/minUSS-avgUSS-maxUSS over samples.
