Hi, everyone

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 4GB). I have an "output" is the Heavy Forwarder. Seems like the memory keeps climbing.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Hi hcarvcamp, hmm, seems like a memory leak. Have you tried utilizing the Database Connect App? It's built by Splunk precisely for this sort of purpose.

To address the script itself, could you share it in a comment? (or revise the question to include it)

Otherwise, please let me know if this answers your question! 😄
