Try "memory"?
It would help if you listed your platform and MATLAB version, as this only works on Windows.
You can also use OS functions to get the memory size, too -- on Windows you can use
tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq matlab.exe"
and on Linux/Mac you can use "ps", grep, awk, etc. You could call these from a system call and parse the output.

A few years ago I suggested to Mathworks that they include memory usage in their Profiler. They said they were thinking about it.
Are they still thinking?
