There is need to ensure that there are no memory leaks in common User interactions. This will ensure more stability for end user, and prevent reduced memory available to apps.  Propose to  track this metric for the FC/CC timeframes. 
1) Tests: Define a test case for checking the memory usage after a sequence of operations are done. 
2) Memory measurements: Memory usage (b2g-info) could be measured at the start and end of the test scenario. Example memory metrics tracked can be Used, B2G procs, Non-B2G and processes, Free, Cache, USS  PSS,RSS.  
3) Criteria: For CC timeframe for each release, memory leaks should be zero.
