Exim and processes


I have 2 queries

1) I ran this command : exigrep root /var/log/exim_mainlog

and got a lot of results like this
2014-03-25 18:00:09 1WSO9R-000067-6n <= U=root P=local S=690 T="lfd on Excessive resource usage: xxx (344 (Parent PID:17477))" for /dev/null
2014-03-25 18:00:09 1WSO9R-000067-6n ** /dev/ Unrouteable address
2014-03-25 18:00:09 1WSO9R-000067-6n Completed

(i) I want to know why i didnt get this alert
(ii) why it shows unroutable address
(iii) i think this alert is false positive as the site its complaining uses very less resources

2) My 2nd issue is regarding free memory
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1503       1410         92          0         10        434
-/+ buffers/cache:        965        537
Swap:            0          0          0

Free memory is just 92. Is there anyway I can see which process taking more memory and auto kill/ or make more memory and make free memory?
