When compared to yours I see that I have used many more ditamaps than you; I have 134 ditamaps and 1619 dita files.
Do you know if having a lot of ditamaps effects memory usage?

Because I am using conrefs to render the various system names that I am documenting, there are over 1000 content references pointing to a single file while defines all my reusable system names.
Would 1015 conrefs in a project with 6000 dita files cause memory issues?
