Goal

On PeopleTools 8.49.22, in Unix-based (HP-UX 11.23) PSUNX Process Scheduler, after running of a customized Application Engine (AE) program that extensively use XMLP and Integration Broker (IB) function in loop, it was found that the PSAESRV process consumed a large amount of memory and does not release it after the AE process finished. The customized AE is coded with a CollectGarbage() function call to try release the memory.

Why does it not release memory, and how to release the memory consumed by PSAESRV?
