We have a very small cluster, but find that we need 8GB for the
QMaster. I think what is more important is the rate of submitting and
running jobs. We submit and run 10's of thousands of jobs in the space
of a couple of hours on our small cluster.

We have to use BDB spooling: plain text doesn't give the necessary performance.
