No bother at all!  I'm glad you've got a solution that's viable for
you now.  That said, there are still some issues with memory handling
in the Windows version of Erlang, but as we discussed previously they
tend to only manifest when the process is under significant memory
stress, as it might get, for example, when a significant imbalance
between producers and consumers exists for too long.  We've yet to see
those issues under Linux, so long term, at least until the Windows
Erlang situation improves, deploying on that OS is always something to
keep in mind.

If you're able to share your data and test results, I think we'd
really appreciate seeing that.  Depending on what the data contain,
someone on the team may even have some suggestions on optimization
for your specific scenario.

Best regards,
