Hello Maxim, thanks for reply.

Is there possibility to purge allocated buffer(RAM) in old(gracefully)
worker processes? IMO worker thread have allocated all memory till last
clients disconnects. That is really isue for us - we have currently 32Gigs
of spare RAM to be able to handle reload under load.
