The values are coming straight out of ps in KiB (see earlier scripts).
Values are shown in KiB, but note that the y-axis ranges from
300,000KiB to 500,000KiB (and not 300-500KiB). The 'k' suffix after
the y-axis labels is added by rrdgraph to show the values are 10^3.
I'll get the script updated to change output to show MiB instead to
avoid any further confusion (to me or anyone else!). I think the
"--units-exponent value" option should allow me to do this.
