Read the following thread

http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.sysutils.systemd.devel/11362

Interesting.



To determine how much memory is the process really using run

pmap `pidof systemd-journald`


see the "total" at the end in the PSS column.


Large dump. But you say only the last part is interesting.

I'm not familiar with this kind of output. The VIRT figure of top must be the "SIZE" figure here. It is growing (1941m/1988064K this instant).
