You can try to tune down max-queue-size in innfeed.conf. I have
it set to 5. Otherwise innfeed will keep a lot of articles
in-memory, which if they are binaries will blow it up quickly.
(Which reminds me, this machine has gotten more memory, might
want to tune it up again)
Setting use-mmap to true might help as well if your articles
are stored in wire-format.
