This could be normal.  Some threading systems allocate significant
number of pages per thread (generally on the stack).  Heap wise,
slurpd should be fairly small.  Does it grow significantly over
time (and use)?  After 1 hr, 2 hr, 24 hrs.

Depending on the number of indices, size of your directory, and
cache knows, this could be quite normal as well.  The 2.0 beta
slapd is known to have some serious leakage... I believe 2.0 devel
has most of them plugged.

With slurpd, yes.  With slapd, no.

Could be.
