collectd uses a lot of virtual memory on my system:
% ps aux | head -n1; ps aux | grep collectd
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
root 6131 0.1 0.3 67952 2288 ? Sl 21:49 0:00
collectd -C /etc/collectd/collectd.conf -f
root 26504 0.0 0.0 1436 308 ? S Aug24 0:00
VSZ is 67952 which seems a lot to me. Is this normal? Is there anyway
I can lower it (perhaps by using more lazy memory allocation)? I care
about the amount of allocated memory (and not only used memory) since
it is counted against my VPS quota.
Thankful for any useful answers.
