[Pharo-project] how to find the memory size of an object graph

I have some problems with memory consumption in a Moose model.
However, I do not quite know where the memory is spent.
To solve this, I would need to know the amount of space occupied by
the objects (and all the referenced objects subgraphs).
I found Object>>sizeInMemory, but this only shows the size of the
current object. What I would need is a graph traversal that does not
break on cyclic graphs, and that accumulates the size of the objects.
I thought of using Fuel for this. I tried to follow the instructions from here:
and work with the debug facilities:
(ConfigurationOfFuel project version: '1.8') load: #(FuelDebug).
For small examples, it seems to work fine:
FLAnalyzer newDefault setDebug; analysisFor: #((1) (2) (3) (4))
However, for larger examples, the process takes forever.
Is there another way of approaching this problem?
