[erlang-questions] Memory management

Hello,

During testing of our application we found that a larger instance
consumes about 80% (800MB) of system memory when it is actively doing
something. When it is only "loaded" but not started (all the processes
are there but no messages are sent), it consumes about 11% of system
memory. We have no idea what can make for such a big difference so
we started to wonder how does the erlang runtime decide to perform
a GC?

Thanks,

Ladislav Lenart
