Influxd process occupying high SWAP utilization

Hi All,

Using influxdb of version 1.7.9 along with grafana for capacity planning. All of a sudden (past 1 month) experiencing high swap usage of the influx process. Below provided the evidence.

top swap using processes which are still running:
6614348 kb /usr/bin/influxd -config /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf
431200 kb /usr/sbin/rsyslogd -n
88920 kb /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-journald

free -m

                total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available

Mem: 48301 25576 265 36 22459 22228
Swap: 9535 8871 664

Restarting influx releases the swap, but within some time it’s occupying again. No changes done recently.

Any idea on this?

Might be helpful :

What is the memory usage footprint of influx now compared to last month. Has that changed?

Is your server running new processes that have a high demand on memory that have changed in the last month?
