I would like to get a process's memory usage and it seems that pmap can do that. However, the value it returns is different from what I see in top command.

# pmap 22080 | grep total
total          6588952K
# top | grep 22080
22080 ghatee    20   0 6588948 5.873g  11936 R 100.0  9.4   1120:17 pw.x       

What is the reason?
