Splunk 8.2.1 on Windows Crashes every night


every night my Server Crashes saying out of memory error however I have more than enough memory.

In event logs get a : Unable to allocate dynamic memory buffer ,and Faulting application name: splunkd 

faulting module name: Ucrtbase.dll


Systems log has a low memory condition  looks like Splunk has a memory leak so how do i find out what is causing it ?

Do you have a scheduled search that runs overnight and consumes a lot of memory?

How much is "more than enough memory"?

Once you've ruled out a rogue search and confirm the system meets the recommended hardware specs, consider opening a case with Splunk Support.
