What version.  ? Try the latest 2.4 version.  2.1 suffers from a pretty
severe memory leak in Debian.  Honestly it’s so bad that I think the
packages should be removed from Debian and maybe collectd should issue an
advisory on their site.

800MB is very common.  We had to build packages from scratch from debian to
fix this issue.
