"""
Usage: memusage.py [-o filename] command [args...]

Runs a subprocess, and measure its RSS (resident set size) every second.
At the end, print the maximum RSS measured, and some statistics.

Also writes "filename", reporting every second the RSS.  If filename is not
given, the output is written to "memusage.log"
