Extensive memory allocation

When I tried to upload > 200k files with a size of circa 750 GB to a SFTP server, the client application allocated almost 10 GB memory which leaded on a system with 15.5 GB RAM and a 16 GB swap partition to an effective unusable system state. I was unable to switch to another TTY and I was not able to kill to application or execute another action as moving the mouse cursor. I used the application with KDE Plasma 5.7.4.
I suggest to confine the usage of resources to avoid such situations.
