there are 6 folders and 4 peers.
peers A and B are always on. that remaining 2 peers are off 99% of the time.
folder A and B are shared send-only with peers A and B respectively. the other 4 folders are basically empty.
folder A is 115000 files, roughly 1TB.
folder B is 25000, roughly 300GB.
both trees are well balanced (i.e. no single folder in the tree contains, say, more than 100 files).
as I pointed out, I’m not saying that memory usage is large or small, I’m just saying that it seems to grow over time (something that never happened before the upgrade to 1.40).
