Oh, that's fine. Thanks for this.

So we can see that one queue process is taking up 10G, and there's 
nothing much else that is eating up large quantities of memory. That's 
quite a lot, but if nothing else is using the memory then there's no 
reason to stop it.

So I'm afraid you'll have to upgrade Erlang - so we can find out whether 
the VM really is trying to allocate more than 6 exabytes of memory...

Cheers, Simon
