This is per child, as I wrote.
Do you have any additional rulesets like those SARE rules installed? If
so, how many/what total size?
SA3 really explodes in size when more rules are given.
Without additional rulesets, i.e. just with the rules SA 3.0 ships with,
I have about 20M of memory usage by spampd (spamassassin based SMTP/LMTP
With an additional 460k of rules (some SARE, some others), this shoots
up to 40M.
With 5M of additional rules, it consumes like 170M of memory.
So I would guess that you use additional rulesets totalling about 10-15M
in size. Am I right?
If so, try removing the biggest rulesets installed, probably something
like SARE BigEvil or the like.
