    Memory usage in Profiler is WAY less than what the OS reports.

      Hi all,

       

      I've got an app that I'm running through the profiler, and the profiler says it's using about 15 MB right after the app starts up:  http://screencast.com/t/eAqgvTX4Rhx

       

      However, when I look at the app in Activity Monitor on Mac, it says the app is using 597.4 MB:  http://screencast.com/t/TuxamZeHa55m

       

      On windows, it's even worse, reporting the app is using over a Gig of memory!

       

      Can anyone explain to me why there's such a huge discrepancy in the reported memory use?

       

      Thanks!

      Aaron
