|IIS_pla||CSI5: Console is resource hungry after some days of activity|

I use a dedicated PC for running the Secunia Console csi.exe. That PC is always on and will be rebooted usually only after some weeks (at least once a month after the Microsoft patch day).
After some days of activity the resource consumption of csi.exe increases more and more: the memory usage grows to 500 MB and even more, the CPU load also increases until one core of an Intel i5 is completely used by csi.exe (what shows up as a CPU usage of 25%). I cannot say what causes the problem - I recognize it always after some days when the reaction time of the console becomes slower and slower. In that state it is not possible to correctly end the csi.exe process - I have to kill it manually from the task manager.
When I restart the console (without restarting other programs and without a reboot of the system), everything is ok again: the memory consumption typically is about 140...150 MB, the CPU usage is about 0 in idle state and 3...5% during a database update (dropping to 0 immediately after the update has been done). After some days of activity the problem arises again...
Remark: I also experienced the behaviour described above with other (older) versions of the console (e.g. the "Secunia cloud version" 22.214.171.1245)
Some data regarding my system:
- Intel i5 CPU / 750
- 8 GB RAM
- Secunia Console 126.96.36.199, server version
- actually about 1.400 hosts in the database, about 70.000 programs
- size of local Secunia database: about 40 MB
Is there an logging option what could help to debug that problem?

|Status update - 2 days after a restart of the Secunia console:
- RAM usage about 200 MB
- CPU usage varies between 15...18 %: half of one core is used permanently...
