High RAM Usage for gnome-shell-calendar-server

Greetings lovely people,

On GNOME 3.34.1 and ever since updating from 3.32, I've noticed that this task gnome-shell-calendar-server starts out when I log in at around 30-40MB of RAM used, and then like an hour later it's using over 600MB of RAM. Is this normal? Thanks in advance for any help!

Attached below is a quite screenshot to show how much RAM the task is eating up.

Not the case here


Can you give more context of your setup ?

Same here. I open lots of browser tabs every day and stream news videos. Tend to collect about 5 GB in 2 days, sometimes 8GB. I have the RAM for that, but would prefer it didn't happen or if there was a simple command line to wipe it out. As it is now, the only thing I know to do is to log out or reboot.

Glad I'm not the only one, wish I understand why gnome-shell-calendar-server wants to eat up like 1-2MB every 5 minutes exponentially. Ends up eating over a gig or more if I have my laptop on all day. I just use system monitor to End or Kill the task, but it just restarts itself and does the eating of RAM all over again.

Memory leaks...
