If the program is still running

use this command:
ps -eo vsz -o fname |grep <Command Name>
Example to see size for snmpd (SNMP Daemon)

$ps -eo vsz -o fname|grep snmpd
8592 snmpd

The first column will give you SIZE, according to manual
SIZE is the virtual
size of the process (code+data+stack).
If the program ends even before you can do anything, try this
Press ^Z when the program starts.
Now the program is in stop state, you could run your ps command to see how much your process uses.
Once you are done use 'fg' command to resume the stopped process.
