Improvement of memory allocation possible?


if it possible to add an option which allows to shrink memory buffers
immediatly if they are not full? [1]

I run an Tor server on a virtual server in which the amount of RAM is
the bottleneck of this system.
Since ~ 3 weeks i measure the "resident" memory allocation and the
corresponding traffic of the Tor server and the thing i realize is that
the allocation only shrinks if i shutdown (and restart) the Tor server. [2]

I would rather treat the CPU than the RAM.
Is there a way?
