[vox-tech] Memory usage puzzle

Anyone know a good utility that will go through all allocated memory 
blocks and tell you which process or executable is responsible for each 

Yes I know about "ps".  I don't think it really does that.  Here's my 

When I start up my colo box, running ntpd, bind, sshd, postfix, Courier 
pop3d/imapd, apache, postgresql, xvnc, one KDE session, and some other 
normal stuff, "free" shows about 60 MB in use (after subtracting buffers 
and cache).  After a day or two, memory usage climbs to around 260MB and 
stays there.  If I stop VNC/KDE, apache, all mail stuff and the sql 
server, memory in use still stays over about 220 MB.

So, what's using all that memory?  I'd like to find out.

Total physical memory is 1GB.
