gulm's memory usage is directly related to the number of locks it uses.
The number of locks used depends on what exactly you're doing with gfs.
So, the exact answer is that it depends.
Roughly, each lock uses 230 bytes.  Each hold on a lock uses about 80
bytes.  Each request to change the state of a holder on a lock is about
130 bytes.  Plus a bunch of static buffers.

Most simple setups I've seen use around 64M.  I've also seen setups use
nearly a gig of memory too. (not common) YMMV
