Hi Tom, thanks for your response. JIT is enabled, but I'm not familiar with this feature and not sure what we are using which would touch JIT somehow. 

Also, am I wrong to imagine that a memory leak would leak memory gradually over time, rather than to be set off at some arbitrary point by the same exact workload that has been visited upon the database for the previous 1-2 months hitherto?
