    An actual but where did my Linux memory go command;
    This program (repositories) came in handy while helping someone resolve an problem. Want to see memory usage and shared memory, perhaps sorted by swap?

    smem -s swap -kta
    smem --sort swap --abbreviate --totals --autosize
    What about on other categories running a --sort?
    swap     (amount of swap space consumed ignoring sharing)
    command  (process command line)
    maps     (total mappings count)
    name     (process name)
    pid      (process id #)
    user     (process owner)
    pss      (proportional set size including sharing)
    rss      (resident set size ignoring sharing)
    uss      (unique set size)
    vss      (virtual set size; total virtual memory mapped)
    Bonus: A filesystem usage command to catch /tmp/ and tmpfs (temporary file storage) abusers;
    df -h | grep tmpfs
    df --human-readable | grep tmpfs
