Seems to vary by the job.

w/ a minimal document:

\documentclass{minimal}
\begin{document}
$6 \times 9$
\end{document}

I see it go up by ~.05MB per typesetting for that.

Another job (that journal I've been working on) gains ~10MB per
typesetting run.

Yes to the first (I don't get to work in TeX for extended periods of
time which is probably why my crash rate is so low). Probably too
high'' is some value relative to available memory --- what that
relation would be is a good question.
