This is not completely contradictory with the Juniper doc ; as usual with the Juniper doc written with feet, you have to read between the lines:

-> Written in the doc: "Tip: You need not restart the routing protocol process (rpd) to use the 64-bit mode"
-> To be understood: "Joke: You need not restart rpd yourself, because it will be done automatically at the commit and ruin your network for about 10 minutes".

By the way, auto-64-bit is probably the good option to use, since it activates the 64 bit mode only if you have enough RAM installed.
We've been used 64 bit rpd here for 1 year (in 13.3 and 14.2).

Referring to my question, Tim says "Enabling this will cause RPD to restart as you kill one process and start another.“. That’s what I suspected, but is contradictory to the Juniper documentation, thanks! :-)
