Pfsense memory Usage Part 2

Please follow the first part of the discussion at
@Gertjan , Gmail do generate such errors, There is a limit of emails that can be generated in a day.
Also I have read long back (I don't remember the thread) which states that if freeradius crashes it can be started using Watchdog.
I guess I can look into little later. For the time being Can I conclude that the high memory usage is due to failed notification sent.
The email limit at Gmail is big though. How many things do you have using that account? If it's just this pfSense instance then it must be be trying to send a lot! Maybe something looping that shouldn't be?
I would remover that notification setting and see if that stabilises the RAM use as a test at least.
You can use the service watchdog for Freeradius but you shouldn't need to. Are you seeing it stop? You should really investigate why it's stopping if so.

@stephenw10 Gmail limit is something around 500 emails a day. I was using single email accounts for all my sites. Service Watchdog was also monitoring dpinger for sites having multiple WAN. Due to heavy rains WAN connections were quite unstable. So it generated lot of mails. Anyway the real issue is neither Service Watchdog nor FreeRadius, the problem seems to be created by squid (as pointed by @stephenw10 in previous thread) . I am using transparent https filtering. Read about it
When I manually restart squid it stablises. As a workround, I am planing to use php script provided by @remzej , till something better comes up.
