I do not have access but I've started a poudriere build
of my own on a HoneyComb. I've a patched top that monitors
and reports various Maximum Observed (MaxObs????) figures,
64 GiBytes of RAM and slightly over 246 GiBytes of swap.
So hopefully it will report on about how big the memory use
gets. But it is allowed to use all 16 cores and there will
be no competing bulk builds using resources. So not a match
to the build server context.

Note: It is a ZFS context, so MaxObsWired is normally large
and shrinks over times where memory needs to be used for
other things. So the primary memory figures would be:

MaxObsSwapUsed (if any)

Side Note:

reports a Time of 11:48:41 but the log reports "build time: 12:31:35".
My guess is that processing the log file for extracting the type of
error makes some (much?) of the difference. (Type being runaway_process
in this case.)
