When I start cpan (win32, perl5.8.4), perl consumes about 12MB.
When I issue "m Tie::PureDB", memory consumption climbs to 56MB.
If I issue "reload index", memory consumption climbs to 80MB.

and creating a giant data structure out of all this data, can consume quite a bit of memory.

You need to examine the following (and probably other) CPAN settings (and their CPANPLUS equivalents, if any): build_cache, cache_metadata, dontload_hash.

update: Looks like my loose sugestion on the CPAN settings probably isn't very useful :(
#4943: CPAN module too memory intensive

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
