    • Aaron Kili says:


      RSS(Resident Set Size) is the amount of memory occupied by a process that is held in main memory (RAM) and PSS(Proportional Set Size) is the amount RAM occupied by a process(which is the private memory of that process plus the proportion of shared memory with one or more other processes).

    What is this python-tk package you’re talking about? Can’t find it. Are you talking about tkinter?
