John's just landed some work that cuts down memory use a fair bit for large branches. IIRC we expect savings of roughly 20MB for a branch the size of Launchpad, depending on factors like exactly how much of the repository indices are loaded. So if we're lucky it might cut loggerhead's memory consumption by 10%.

So this bug certainly isn't fixed yet, but hopefully when Launchpad rolls out 2.1 the problem will be eased a little bit. It would be interesting to know just how much the new version helps, I guess if we monitor the lp graphs we'll be able to see what difference (if any) it makes?
