Hello, thanks for all the help! Tor has no memory leak on my server. I reduced the band width settings from 200KB/400KB to this: BandwidthRate 100 KB BandwidthBurst 200 KB and Tor uses around 90 MB of memory and is now running stable since 5 days: 28039 debian-t 16 0 107m 88m 7380 S 4 4.4 200:31.26 tor If I want to run tor with higher BandwidthRate (attracting more users, as Dominik explains below), then I have to rent a server with more memory.

But even in that configuration it consumes about 200M of RAM.
