I wonder how can I monitor the resources used by a script of
mine, which spawns several other processes while running.

I am particularly interested in the following:
	- disk space usage
	- memory usage
	- bandwidth (http reuqests and responses)
in total (although a detailed report for each child process
as well would be nice).

I am especially interested in this for the purpose of
evaluating resource-requirements for later deployments on
other systems, but such a report should also be useful for
understanding the peak resource requirements of the script
so I can try and limit it (e.g., in case it uses up too much
memory, I'd like to be able to limit its memmory consumption
up front instead of having a paniking kernel killing
processes in order to survive once my script takes up too
much memory).
