How do you have it compiled, and what features are you using?

I can’t imagine why it would need anywhere near that much memory. Mine (on FreeBSD) is 30.5Mb, running since Monday morning. However there are some in-core databases that can grow, depending on how you’re using the filter.

Subject: opendkim resource utilization

I recently deployed opendkim in a Solaris 10 zone and at one point noticed that the amount of memory consumed by the opendkim process was about 1.3G (SIZE according to top). It is currently running at about 331M (opendkim was recently restarted on June 1st). What are the best practices to keep the amount of memory consumed in check? Or is it best just to let it take what it needs? I don't have a problem either way, just want to make sure we are handling this properly. Thank you for your assistance.
