[Swift-user] Memory is a serious issue

It is me again. 

Discounting for my manifest inability of using swift intelligently, it seems that to runs simulations we need *a lot* of RAM (8+ GB for the large sims, say > 10^6 app runs, which is taxing on the login nodes). Any idea about how we can reduce out memory footprint?

Otherwise, I just sent a 300K sim as a small test and it seems to work. (I call it a small test because the next one is going to be in the 10G size).
