No of volumes on SAN Array : 1024 
Cimserver Ver 2.13 

I enumerate all the1024 volumes by using cimcli ei "CIM_StorageVolume" ... 

This causes cimserver RES memory to increases by 100% , and it never comes down , when I ran the same cimcli commands multiple times, the RES memory of cimserver increases non linearly, sometimes it does comes down however it doesn't free all the heap. It looks like cimserver is holding some information in cache and also making different provider calls automatically(may be association traversal ) after couple of hours , this looks weird why does it behaving like this ? shouldn't CIMSERER behave like an normal server application ? i.e after serving the client it should wait for next client request  ? is there any way to stop cimserver doing this auto calls?  

thanks in advance .

Anybody has any clue about this behavior , it looks like SMIS provider is doing various enumeration without even SMIS client request, is there anyway to disable this behavior in cimserver ? 

I would really appreciate any help here .
