A long time ago I made a simple binding which has been packaged for
cabal by Gwern Branwen. The package is called highWaterMark:


As the name suggests it tells you the upper limit of RTS allocated
memory. It does not tell you about memory allocated by foreign calls.

I can't test it at the moment, but it is probably bit-rotten.

Maybe it is something to start with?
