I somewhat expected this answer.

I guess asking for this number *after* system was running into hard
memory pressure was the wrong approach at my side. ;-)

If everything's running fine the memory footprint per user on Linux
x86_64 seems to be fairly low (10..15 MB/user with send
"lowest".."low"). But I can't provide more exact numbers because I
currently only have 7-8 producers and consumers in one group (while TURN
server is relaying 10..11 MBit/sec). Nowhere near a serious performance

All in all:
Many thanks for providing galene!
- The performance seems to be pretty good (means constant) even on my
insanely small hardware.
- Setup also is fairly easy.
- And while the UI is a bit different from what users are used to with
other systems they have no problem to get into a normal video-conference.

Ciao, Michael.
