Create a Container Action Using GitHub Actions
In order to optimize the performance of our application, we need to check the memory allocated to the container during build time. Using a GitHub Action, we will send input and output parameters to the runner in order to insert a greeting as well as verify total memory from within the build logs.

Create a Shell Script to Output Memory Info
In order to retrieve memory info from the container, we must create a script to retrieve this information, and then run the script on the container.
