  They really aren't. Doing 'ps -ef' in IRIX 5.3 and looking at the SZ
  column shows that these programs have extremely large address spaces,
  about 128M each. That's not the same thing as the physical memory they
  occupy, which is shown in the RSS column and which should be much
  smaller. See ps(1) and the IRIX 5.3 Cadmin release notes for more.

  However, there is a bug in the objectserver which makes it grow
  continuously when it can't find a directoryserver.  SGI claims to have
  fixed this in patch 1096; however, some disagree.
