Splunk Forwarder Service/ Windows Infrastructure App Causing PowerShell.exe to use 50% CPU + continuously growing Memory

Hi Guys - apologies ahead of time for my ignorance as I'm a rookie.

I have the splunk forwarder installed on a DC running 2012 R2. Service runs fine with no apps installed. When I stop the service, install TA-DNSServer-NT6 and TA-DomainController-NT6 for the windows infrastructure splunk app, and restart the service, Windows Powershell hovers consistently at 50+% CPU in task manager. Memory usage starts around a few hundred MB and grows by about 3mb/s without stopping. Right now it's at about 2050mb of memory.

All the correct information looks like it's being collected in splunk. I can see LDAP information, DS client binds, etc...

We have 2 other DCs on 2008 R2 that are forwarding information using the Splunk App For AD and the task manager shows no similarities.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm an idiot - Didn't even notice that there is an addon specifically for 2012 R2 that comes with this app (TA-DomainController-2012R2). Will leave this here just in case anyone else has the same brain fart. Thanks everyone.
