DLM Dashboard Memory Leak
I tried out DLM Dashboard today. I set it up to monitor a handful of servers (16 DBs in total) around 4 hours ago. It was installed on a VM with only 4GB of RAM, but the requirements at http://documentation.red-gate.com/display/DDB1/Requirements?_ga=1.195114735.2137023563.1395078488 did not list a RAM requirement, so I wasn't expecting it to be an issue.
Just now I was forced to restart the DLM SQL Server Monitoring Service because it was consuming almost all of the system's available RAM, and in the time that I have been writing this it has already climbed back up to over 2.5GB.
Is this memory usage typical? How high should I expect it to get? Can you update the requirements document with a recommended RAM estimate?

I would expect this is because of SQL Server. SQL Server with default settings will consume all available RAM.

We noticed you have a support request for this as well, we will give an update here about its outcome.
