How large should a mogilefsd process become?

Very strange...

Well, the replication process is getting a review/rework currently, so
we'll keep an eye out for anything that would cause it to bloat.

You can telnet in to the port your tracker listens on and type '!watch'
which will reveal errors/status updates from the various jobs (including
the replicators).

You can also turn on debug output and run the tracker in the foreground,
but that's pretty spammy.  To do this, run the tracker and set the
environment variable DEBUG to 1 or 2.  (2 is more output!)
