I am working on a persistent storage module as we speak...

If you have millions of objects, you will want to tune the parameter
obj_workspace as far down as you sensibly can to reduce overhead.
As for memory use, I do not have an exact formula I can give you
but most of the non-storage-file space used is proportional to number
of objects, and not very tweakable.

Have you tried varnishtop ? :-)

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
