With the latest INN CVS versions, if I do:

# ll history
-rw-rw-r--    1 news     news     986806103 Nov 21 13:50 history
# wc -l history
16766878 history
# makedbz -o -s 16766878

makedbz becomes quite big:

# ps aux | grep makedbz
USER       PID %CPU %MEM   VSZ  RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root     10426 97.5 38.2 345400 344512 pts/0 R    13:54   0:45 makedbz -o -s 16766878

345 MB? During nightly expire, it grows about this big as well. This
box has 1GB of memory, so it isn't that much of a problem, but I've
got other boxes with 192/256 MB and they will trash to death because
of this.

Looks like the history.hash or history.index files are built in-memory
and only later on written out ?
