@Hi @ssuluguri,

I'm not sure if that's the case, but version 9.0.4 solved several issues included thread and memory usage

Fixed issues

SPL-230581, SPL-227411After upgrade one set of clustered indexers has increase in thread crashes during search
SPL-231852, SPL-230091Search utilize huge memory on only one indexer.


Hope this will help you, have a nice day,
