it's dwke crashing, that grows up to 1 GB in my instance
You might take a look with top while gdr is runnign and see what happens
here ...

There are 3 master-error.log.* files with a similar error.
The problem occurs during the get_arch() call which runs dpkg
--print-architecture. We could work around this by setting amd64
everywhere in piuparts.conf

used - buffers - shared = ~800MB

buffers and cached only occupy ram not used for other things (and speed
up piuparts-master runs by having the directory indices cached)

I don't think so
