What is the amount allocated? What is the amount used? How are these numbers
arrived at? Are you asking for a specific amount of memory in your submission

As Bill said, for most large memory items, sander will only allocate what it
needs. Are you using non-standard options (pbsa, for example)? And, how
many atoms in your system? For "ordinary" sytems (say 50,000 atoms), sander
should use less than 1 Gb of memory for standard MD.
