Description (partial)

The Session Manager Daemon (sessmgrd) increases memory usage over time, use 'show processes memory platform sorted' to monitor the RSS value:

<div style="font-family:courier;white-space:pre;">
------------------ show processes memory platform sorted ------------------
System memory: 7764904K total, 2930676K used, 4834228K free, 
Lowest: 4808588K
   Pid    Text      Data   Stack   Dynamic       RSS              Name
23083     178    366720     136    196408    366720          sessmgrd

The module that allocates the largest amount of memory is 'OBJ_WEBAUTH_INFO', run 'show platform software memory smd switch active R0 brief'

<div style="font-family:courier;white-space:pre;">
#show platform software memory smd switch active R0 brief
  module                  allocated     requested     allocs        frees

  OBJ_WEBAUTH_INFO        72351744      71303168      1885454       1819918

When memory is depleted the 'sessmgrd' process crashes and logs:

<div style="font-family:courier;white-space:pre;">
%PMAN-0-PROCFAILCRIT: A critical process sessmgrd has failed (rc 134)
