at this moment on my box the tor process allocates about 2,3 gig virtual
memory respectively 1,5 gig of non-swapped physical memory:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
15486 debian-t 25 0 2329m 1.5g 25m S 75 78.2 17930:45 tor
So running multiple instances seems not an option. My box only is
equipped with 2 gig RAM.

can you give me a hint about OpenSSL supported crypto hardware?
