Vulnerability Scan Consumes All Server Memory

Hello,

 

Does anyone have troubleshooting experience with a vulnerability scan maxing out a server's memory? It doesn't appear to be happening during every scan, but occurs frequently. I am not 100% sure that Qualys is the culprit, but I haven't found a way to eliminate the possibility either. This is happening with a complete QID vulnerability scan on a Red Hat server. Are there any specific process I should look for that would point to Qualys during scan time? I opened a case with support, but any help here is appreciated. Thanks.
