[FFmpeg-user] FFMpeg + HTTP protocol: RAM consumption

We are using FFProbe and FFMpeg with the http protocol.
We noticed a spike of memory consumption when we activated http compared to
using local files. I guess FFmpeg caches in memory what's coming from http.
What is the consumption pattern here? Is memory being freed along the way?
Will it cache the entire file?
How can I accurately estimate how much memory my machine needs for running
this type of jobs? (in this case a Docker container)
Thank you in advance.
