PRTG Memory load with Powershell API (lordmilko)



We currently need to use lordmilko's PowerShell API to make larger changes in PRTG (such as error limits). However, we have the problem that PRTG's memory load keeps increasing even after the script has been terminated, and it doesn't recover. Does anyone know about this issue and has been able to solve it? I know it was not developed by Paessler, but I still wanted to ask in the forum. The only solution that helps is to keep restarting the entire server, but this is not practical as we need the server to be productive.

Are you able to advise what version of PrtgAPI you're using? PrtgAPI 0.9.18 includes an enhancement recommended by Paessler to prevent memory leaks in PRTG caused by calling the /editsettings API

We don't need the PRTG API from Paessler itself. We need the following API: https://github.com/lordmilko/PrtgAPI Since we have a PowerShell script for it.
