ndsd service comsuming SWAP memory

Hi all.

It has happened twice that the ndsd service is comsuming a lot of swap memory of the server. Everytime i'm being notified after it happens. Just to make things quick, is there any way of knowing what could have happened? i only read through ndsd.log but did not find useful and don't quite know where else to look.

Any ideas?

Environment:

Server Redhat 7.4 with eDirectory 9.1.2 and IDM 4.7.2.

We have a couple of SAP and a Loopback driver in that server but nothing too fancy, RoleResourceService and UserApplication drivers are in another server.

Thank you so much for your help

Re: ndsd service comsuming SWAP memory

Do you happen to use CEF or XDAS auditing or have a large number of dynamic groups?

There's several memory bugs in that particular version of the directory service that are solved in 9.1.4.

Re: ndsd service comsuming SWAP memory

Hi Mark, thank you so much for your answer. 

Yes, i'm using CEF audit module and i have somewhere around 90 Dynamic Groups. 

Is there a way or some workarround to this situation? or upgrading to 9.1.4 is the only way?

Thank you.

Turn off CEF for all but one replica, and enable logging replicated events. If you have a load balancer in front of those, then exclude your "logging" server from servicing queries.
