Enabling profiling can significantly change the space behavior of
programs. There may be some important optimizations that don't occur
in the presence of profiling, and the profiling data itself takes
some memory. I have to admit, I don't know a lot about GHC profiling
so I'm afraid I can't be of much help. If you can scale down the
problem size to do your profiling, that may keep it from being OOM'd
and let you get some useful data.

That's good to hear. What's the usage pattern?

Speak softly and drive a Sherman tank.
Laugh hard; it's a long way to the bank.
