Memory Leak issue on Docker Engine 24.0.6

Docker related issue: Here we are running our Linux based application inside docker container & when we start the process it holds 1.4GB of memory we haven’t explicitly allocated the memory neither it’s memory leakage from app side .
On normal VMs this process doesn’t hold any memory if we compared with Docket instance .
This causes Out Of Memory for docker container

The state of Process is idle still its using the High RAM. Later when we start the processes it runs in Out of memory.

Expected behavior - the reported process sp_cop should not hold 1.4G of memory.

We are using below docker version

In the title you mention “docker engine” but the category is “Docker Desktop”. Which one do you use? Docker Engine doesn’t run any VM.


Based on the docker info output, it can’t be Docker Desktop, so there is no VM that Docker is responsible for.
