"show platform software memory qfp-control-process qfp active brief" will show memory on the QFP's client control processing service. Growth with the following 'CPP List Hdr Chunk' module will show overhead increasing between the number of allocations versus the frees:

Module: CPP List Hdr Chunk
  allocated: 979939766, requested: 979860006, overhead: 79760 <<
  Allocations: 5386, failed: 0, frees: 401

This leak can be triggered by flapping VPN sessions. It can apply to any VPN environment (flexvpn, dmvpn, etc). and is triggered by an internal condtion in which the list elements of the session are not freed properly
