Why bitcoind consumes too much resources (core i5, 8gb memory).
And is there any possibility to decrease it, because i have an idea to put bitcoind on VPS,
but seems it'll slow down all system  Sad

I run bitcoind with standard settings on a 2GB RAM VPS w/o any issues.   1GB should be fine with a little swap space, I'd imagine..

Though on a node where I have 500+ connections, I have to restart it every week or so, else it gets up to 4GB+ in reserved memory

Dacentec Dedicated Servers (Lenoir, NC, USA) from $25/mo & Time4VPS Storage VPS' (Vilnius, Lithuania) from €18/qtr & Hetzner's serverbidding, from ~€20/mo -- had bitcoin nodes & p2pool (dacentec, hetzner) for several years on these.  Only two are affiliate links too, kek! -------  Feel free to join my G2A Goldmine Pyramid Scheme Team, or possibly even buy a Steam game from there.  Maybe.

Weird. Like the guy said above, it runs fine on 2GB Ram, and a small processor. I run it on a VPS fine with those specs.
