Merge Engine taking 32gb of RAM

I have the maximum amount of RAM the merge engines can take to 8192mb, but as you can see from the below it’s currently using more like 32gb… How is this possible and why on earth would it be taking that much?


There are two distinct memory models in Connect. Most of Connect uses Java, with a user-configurable maximum heap size. The embedded browser for content creation is a third-party component that uses C++, and that component does not have a fixed upper bound on memory.

32gb is excessive. There may be a problem somewhere that we need to fix. Can you isolate when that happens? Does it only occur with certain templates? Are we talking about jobs with large amounts of records or pages?

It would probably be easier for us to provide assistance if you open a support request.
