You can try to disable memory pools once to see if they are the cause. If
the answer is positive, you probably want to put a limit on the memory

Actually, if you still have that process running, memory pool stats will
show you the peak consumption and allocation values so you do not have to
disable pools to find out if too much memory was pooled at some time.
