Why am I seeing high memory consumption on my heavy forwarder with a simple PowerShell script running ever 5 minutes?

Hi,

I have a simple PowerShell script that runs every 5 minutes grabbing data from a database. I have noticed the memory climbs quite high (almost 16GB). I do have an "exit" in the PS script. Just seems like the memory keeps climbing.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Chris

I don't disagree with @jcoates_splunk about the support case, but more detail would be cool. What process is consuming memory? Splunkd or PowerShell? Does it ramp up over time, or immediately go to 16GB?

does it behave differently when you run it outside of Splunk?

this should really be a support ticket.
