Sorry I didn't respond to you. I'm doing this during work time and have 
some other commitments.

I have tried to use "massif" only right now and I'm not sure how to 
interpet the output and what flags to use etc.

Could I run it just as "valgrind --tool=massif"? will "ms_print 
massif.out.<pid>" give me the information I need? Is there a place where I 
can upload the output so that you and others can take a look at it(I asume 
that the file is to big to upload to the maillist?!)
