RAM used by Suricata not visible


I’m using Suricata 4.1.10, the memory used is not shown in the screen anymore, it was visible in the past versions.

How to check the memory used by Suricata ?

[root@ab ~]# systemctl status suricata -l

first of all Suricata version 4 is EOL quite some time, to please update to a more recent version first. Where did you see it in the past? In the output of the suricata log?
