al_jobserver.exe high memory consumption

We have observed occational high memory consumption of al_jobserver.exe. Following are the details,

DS version: 4.2 SP4

Landscape: distributed landscape, 4 job server machines

Each job server has 16 GB RAM

Memory spike occationally happens in any of the one jobserver out of the available 4 job severs.

No heavy jobs running during that time.

While al_jobserver.exe memory was around 12 GB, total memory consumed by al_engine.exe didnot crossed 2 GB (around 5 al_engine.exe were running).

Kindly let me know if you have faced similar issue of memory spike in al_jobserver.exe, how you have debugged / resolved.
