Does HaplotypeCaller cost a lot of RAM?

I tried to run several HaplotypeCaller jobs simultaneously on a node. But sometimes, not all the time, they caused the nodes collapse. I noticed that HaplotypeCaller sometimes occupied tens of GB of memory, is this normal? The average depth for my samples is 30x-50x.
