It lasts until we restart.

We suspect it has something to do with errors coming from the shovels
on each instance, since we don't see this same behavior on our

Our best guess is that when the shovels undergo a period where they
have network issues while talking to the cluster, they start spamming
the logs with output and the memory usage rises.  Once the network
connectivity issues resolve themselves, the memory usage seems to
stabilize and remain moderately flat.

I don't understand what you mean by "larger terms".
