1853m? That much? It is virtual ram, not actual ram, but still...

AIUI, the VIRT figure includes the on-disk size of the binary and all its linked libraries, as well as the resident data and (parts of) binaries. It certainly has no relation to any actual memory or disk usage (not least because many libraries will be counted in several applications' figure...)


Can I restart it? Should I?


Of course, it is not the only hungry app. These are the worst:

It ends in me having 3 GB of swap in use on a machine with 8 GiB of RAM.
