Kong ingress high memory usage (V1.14.5)

I am having memory problems with increasing resource consumption every day from Kong. I applied every solution to mitigate the memory Kong issue from before but still was ineffective. Some solutions I apply such as:

  • Reduce worker process Kong (= 1)
  • Install the latest version (1.14.5)

After 2 weeks my memory Kong has increased to 1G RAM, while this is just a test environment and the number of requests is very limited. Will VM Lua use the algorithm to automate resource management? If so, I would probably use the resource limit k8s to limit this.
I use Kubernetes init from Kops and running on AWS. Please help me, thank you !

Hi @matt-nguyen,

Does this issue still persist? Did you end up changing resource limits to deal with this problem?
