Description (partial)

Cat3k/Cat4k switch may leak memory in "MallocLite" or "Dead" processes. If "no mem lite" is configured, all of the leak will start to appear in the "Dead" process. In the 'show mem dead' output, you may see "IFS entry agent" and "SSH Process" taking up memory.

Multiple accesses to the device, over SSH/SCP triggers this leak. For instance, the " Cisco smart install director" doing multiple configuration backup to the Cat3750 stack is known to cause this leak.
