We have 570 samba users and not more than half of that got samba server
access. Currently there are 39 users connected to samba and each of them
occupies 14-16Mb of RAM. Besides that there are root processes 3-5 times
smbd processes (each accupies 14-16Mb of RAM too). I know that sometimes
samba needs to switch to root to do specific root's task but do they need
that much?

PS. I have kaspersky processes too but totally they only eat not more than
400Mb. Even though I killed Kaspersky, syslog, apache and webmin and switch
to init 3, they still eat the memory out.
