The VMware's Memory Ballooning is causing this behavior.

The OneClickService.exe is not the culprit. As per the Windows Task, it is using less than 1 GB.

And the OneClick Web Server Memory is limited to 2,276 MB.

Downloaded the RamMap utility from to check the memory utilization.

Most of the Memory is allocated to the Driver Locked.

When you bounce the Spectrum Tomcat service, the Driver Locked releases the Memory.



Moved the OneClick VM to another ESX host.
