Description

The memcap checking and tracking only tracks the fixed size THashData and StringType, but not the length of the data in StringType::ptr.

One issue is how to deal with upgrades. If suddenly more data is accounted in the memcap, existing setups might suddenly hit the memcap after upgrading.

I don't see a nice way about it. Does this mostly refer to setting of a memcap in a rule where the user will have a harder time changing it assuming they are getting it from a 3rd source?

Could we define a dataset name under datasets before loading the rule that defines that dataset, the memcap set there would serve as an override?
