Topic: Flowforce process increasing its RAM usage every day
Posted: Thursday, April 29, 2021 11:18:12 AM
Good morning everyone,

First time posting here, if it's not the right section, please point me in the right direction.

We have an Altova Flowforce server installed on a Debian 10 VM on GCP. The VM has a 4 core vCPU, 4GiB RAM and a 50GB Disk.
The VM itself is a clean Debian 10 on which we installed only the prerequisites for Altova Flowforce (java, etc) and the Flowforce server itself.
After that we added some scripts that gather files to be processed by Flowforce. Those scripts run with some simple CRON configurations.

We have had an incident recently in which the VM completely stopped responding because a process was monopolizing the RAM and not even an SSH could be established.
Checking the memory usage over the past weeks shows a constant increase:

Not being able to see which process was the culprit I started checking the VM on a time I know nothing is running except Flowforce. These are all screenshot of `htop` taken around 12.00 (5 minutes more or less than that) over the past day.






Is there anyone here that have encountered this issue? Any pointers about what could it be causing this?
