X-Posting this from the Debian-user list. - So i am talking about a 
debian system - but i guess the problem resides in the erlang vs

since that day i experience a significant increase of ram-usage on that 
machine. ejabberd is the only service running on that box. you can see 
the ram-usage in that munin-stat:

question is: anybody having the same problem? and even more important - 
does anyone know the cause for that behaviour or how to fix it?

thank you a lot

BTW: oh hai - happy sysadmin-day!
