Fixed in mono master a4f595060b00ea294e246271ac9e0c62c7bf5853, we now return task_basic_info.resident_size, which is not the same, but still better than returning 0.

Comment 5 Zoltan Varga 2014-07-28 19:16:40 UTC is based on an older version of mono which doesn't contain the fix. 7.2.6 should have it through.
Comment 6 Zoltan Varga 2014-07-28 19:20:50 UTC
Also, this bug was fixed in desktop mono, so it might still not work on ios.
