Subject: Memory usage

I am in charge of a very very simple test on the ability of Ocaml
garbage to free unused memory.
Obvioulsy, Ocaml does the work properly (but not in the case of the
global context, where every variable allocation is consider as a
living reference, even if that is not true).
But I can't see, from my (perhaps too fast) reading of the documentation,
how to compute a global memory usage and how I can monitor it.
Does any one has a good and simple suggestion?
