We are noticing heavy memory usage by Packetbeat, which seems to be related to the nfs protocol. The server on which this is happening is an ftp server and runs jobs at night where incoming ftp is moved to nfs shares. As this is a critical system, we are a bit woried that packetbeat.exe is using up to 4GB of RAM. There seem to be no documented options to limit memory usage for packetbeat nfs?
Is this a known issue and what should we do to prevent this kind of excessive ram usage?
