First off, all of the sge_qmaster 'processes' are actually threads, and
all the threads are using the same chunk of memory.   That means that
all the sge_qmaster processes together are using 160MB of RAM, not

Yes, if you turn schedd_job_info to 'false' and restart your daemons,
they shouldn't take up as much memory.  You can also upgrade to 6.0u1
where that bug is fixed.
