It looks like memory consumption is tied to the number of validation
threads which defaults to the number of CPUs (or cores, rather). Paul’s
Pi probably has just one -- if I run Routinator with
--validation-threads 1, I get to a similar number.

Are you perhaps using VMs or somesuch with different number of cores

Kind regards,
