[Freeswitch-dev] limit memory usage of freeswitch

FreeSWITCH doesn¹t eat up all the memory... It just eats up what it needs
and just doesn¹t give it back....

The question is how many concurrent calls are you actually doing? Freeswitch
will allocate as much ram as it needs to an upper limit based on max peak
concurrent calls, then plateau there and not release that ram until you
restart FreeSWITCH....

I have many boxes running high volumes of FreeSWITCH traffic w/ 4 to 8G of
ram, and have secondary processes on those boxes that can use up to 2G of
ram and don¹t have ram issues....
