    It would be more of an app than a tweak, I've seen some stuff in the app store but they only monitor applications not tweaks.

    It would be extremely difficult to make an app which determines how much RAM each tweak was using.

    There is a way to do this for both jailbroken and stock devices using a Mac. Download the latest version of Xcode, which is free in the Mac App Store. Connect your iOS device with USB, open Organizer within Xcode, and make sure in your device's options pane that Use for Development is checked/enabled. Then open the included Instruments app, select Activity Monitor as your tool, select your iOS device as a target from the drop down menu, and hit record. You will see a Mac-like Activity Monitor in real time for your device.

    This will only work if Xcode has the right iOS SDK for your firmware version. If you encounter errors, try starting your device in Safe Mode first, though this is usually not necessary.
