I thought you were saying that each thread took 200MB.  If you mean that
the whole thing takes 200MB, that's not a big deal at all.  You normally
raise the number of threads so that most of your memory is being used,
but you won't go into swap.

Yes, and you should change it, or more likely you should set the max
interpreters to something more reasonable.  It's not likely that you
have enough RAM on that machine to run 250 Perl interpreters without
