I have referred the link but i could not make out which memory process taking high. Please explain how to check show process memory output.
I dont think there is a  command like in cisco routers which shows the % of each process , but with a combination of commands , you can work out which ones are causing the problem...

ASA5540#  show cpu usage
CPU utilization for 5 seconds = 10%; 1 minute: 9%; 5 minutes: 9%

ASA5540# show memory
Free memory:       979339952 bytes (91%)
Used memory:        94401872 bytes ( 9%)
-------------     ----------------
Total memory:     1073741824 bytes (100%)

ASA5540# show processes internal
ASA5540# show processes memory

ASA5540# show perfmon

PERFMON STATS:    Current      Average
Xlates               2/s          0/s
Connections        357/s          0/s
TCP Conns            3/s          0/s
UDP Conns          347/s          0/s
URL Access           0/s          0/s

TCP Intercept        0/s          0/s
HTTP Fixup         225/s          0/s
FTP Fixup            0/s          0/s
AAA Authen           0/s          0/s
AAA Author           0/s          0/s
