i added some in-process data collection to ktistec in order to better understand how it uses memory.

attachment 1: chart of total requested, heap, and free

the chart shows the accumulated total requested memory (blue) over time. as expected, it grows monotonically and almost linearly. in theory, i guess, if i posted something engaging, you'd see the effect of the engagement  (likes, shares, follows, etc. etc. etc.) on memory usage. in any case, the heap (red) remains flat.

attachment 2: table of total requested, heap, and free

i think it would be great to have this chart on the metrics page. when time permits, i'll add it. in the meantime, if you're running a (very) recent build, you're collecting data.

#ktistec

shoutout to @rahul btw for pointing out the memory problems (now fixed, i hope) that led to this work!

Thanks @toddsundsted, I _really_ appreciate all the work you are putting into Ktistec! I should be able to verify the memory problem on Monday, when I have access to a build machine.
