How to avoid Minilogd consuming more memroy


Hi,

Can you please let me know how to get rid of minilogd memory consumption on the linux server . As minilogd is consuming most of the system memory.

minilogd is also showing the D in top and ps commands. It means this process is causing/waiting for Disk/network storage read write operation. That may cause the high Load on the system. May be thats why it is consuming more memory?.
