It's very hard to estimate the water high-mark for memory because the memory includes different things: read-only memory, mmap() on files, read-only memory pages shared between multiple processes for libraries, etc.

I suggest to use the tracemalloc module to have a better idea of the memory usage of the memory directly allocated by Python.
