Have a look what impstats tells you. I guess some queue is defined very
large and fills up.

> Hi
> At this moment, our testing rsyslog is receiving messages from relay
> through RELP in RFC3164 format with message in JSON like:
>   <PRI>DATE RELAYHOST TAG: {"field":"foo",..."data":"orig
> inal_forwarded_message"}
> Once received, mmjsonparse is executed over MSG to check if incoming
> messages "comply", before mmnormalize on data (actually doing nothing due
> to liblognorm bugs already reported) and setting some other fields.
> After that, omelasticsearch action is executed and messages are indexed.
> We are receiving ~1 million events/hour and rsyslog has 2GB of memory and
> process is killed cause out of memory (every other hour).
> What steps could we take to diagnose if that's correct, how to avoid
> it...? Any up to date literature?
> Thanks. Regards
