I'm guessing these things all have a negative impact... Has anyone done a study into the impact of these various things and RAM usage? For example how much RAM can I spare if I don't use Modest at all, or don't use chat accounts, etc. allowing me to weigh the cost vs. benefit of using these features.IIRC, Skype when I used it seemed to be about 5-10Meg impact on RSS. In general, I'd imagine having any QT widgets would add 10-20M use. Not so sure myself, I stopped using widgets entirely, not enough ram for luxuries :)
You can use sp-endurance to measure and visualize usage of all system resources.
I would recommend getting the latest version from here: https://maemo.gitorious.org/maemo-tools/sp-endurance And the debian packaging from maemo-packaging branch and remove the Harmattan specific "aegis" stuff from the debian/control file before building the package. The latest version has pretty nice graphing utilities. Instructions on the use are here: http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/docs/library/html/guide/html/Developer_Library_Developing_for_Harmattan_Developer_tools_Performance_testing_tools_Using_sp-endurance-postproc.html http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/docs/library/html/guide/html/Developer_Library_Developing_for_Harmattan_Developer_tools_Performance_testing_tools_Using_sp-endurance.html They're about the same as for N900: http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/devtools/maemo5/sp-endurance http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/devtools/maemo5/sp-endurance-postprocExcept for the new endurance_plot utility which generates the nice graphs with gnuplot.
