BGP Router Process Memory - reg

1) What is the significance of "holding memory" in the BGP Router Process as seen in SHOW PROCESS MEMORY output? I am seeing more memory is being occupied in most of the routers against calculating the memory occupied by the prefixes received from all the bgp neighbors in that router.

2) Also even if a bgp neighbor advertises prefixes which are filtered not to receive, the prefixes occupies memory resource. Is there anyway apart from not configuring "neighbor soft-reconfiguration in", we can stop these prefixes using the router resources?
