Heavy memory utilization when running on docker desktop

I am running Mayan Version 4.5.8 on Docker Desktop on my Windows 11. I notice it consumes more than 5 gig of my RAM. Majority of the consumption comes from the app container and it stays consistent. Is there any background process causing this?

Yes, this is about right. The minimum required RAM is 4GB.

Is there any background process causing this?

Yes, almost all tasks run as asynchronous background tasks.

The app container is the entire stack as a single container (frontend, all workers, schedule task initiator). It is not ideal for large installations and only provided to get started easily.

Later on you should switch to a multi-container deployment which will allow you to fine tune the memory and CPU usage of each worker class individually.
