In direct HTTP(S) tests (no forward proxy) and  HTTP -> Forward proxy test the memory usage off polygraph-client remains fairly stable once the tests settles into it's top phase.  In HTTPS -> Forward proxy however memory usage of polygraph-client continues to grow and eventually test fails

You can try running Polygraph under valgrind control and analyzing
valgrind reports, but that requires some C++ skills and Polygraph
knowledge to weed out false positives. I suggest filing a bug report for
this problem:

If you can, please include the workload you are using and some kind of
log showing memory usage growth.

We will try to reproduce and, if needed, fix the leak.

Thank you,
