Description (partial)

Symptom:
The cidcli process consumes more than 30 Meg when using "copy <URL> current-config" or "show config".  This memory use be observed from the top utility command output issued from the service account or from CLI "show tech".  Example:

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND                                                                       
 1582 cisco      9    0   40812  39m  5380 S  0.0  8.5   0:01.54 cidcli

The RES column shows that cidcli is consuming 39 Meg of memory.

Conditions:
When running the top command from the service account, type "M" to get the top users of memory.

The "copy current-config <url>" does not leave cidcli consuming high memory.  The "copy <url> current-config" DOES result in cidcli consuming high memory, but only if the <url> config file contains "service signature-definition . . ." configuration.
