Cortex XDR Latest Version - SQL Server Performance Issues

L0 Member

We are running the latest version of Cortex XDR (v8.2.0.X) and having issues with memory consumption on SQL database servers, in particular. I have submitted a request with TAC but wanted to come to the discussion room for advice. Have you all dealt with exclusions or capability disables for agents with high memory consumption?

How did you find out this is cortex related? Is this issue the hole time or in special time frames? 





I've been consistently monitoring (checking in every hour or so) the resource consumption for these servers over the past couple of days. SQL instances in task manager on all hosts runs 2-3 GBs of memory depending on the utilization at the time, but Cortex consistently uses 1-2 GBs (across all task manager entries) and, sometimes, upwards of 5-6 GBs. 

I checked them in our monitoring system. There are no issues.
