Re: memory usage slowly rising

Nice graphs. Can't help with the memory issue, but about the hosting 
company, I've been using serverpronto(.com) for about 9 months now, with 
the tor node running (allocating 70gb / mo) for about 7 of those months
and haven't had a single call from the provider. I've been very happy
with them, only problem is expansions (RAM / hd space) cost you ;<
