We are having a single node Couchbase [4.5.1-2844 Community Edition (build-2844)].

For some reason, we are seeing high memory usage on the server. When we log into the server and view the stats we can see that memcached and beam.smp service is using the memory. I need to know, what is the use of beam.smp process, and why it is consuming high memory. Screenshot for the same is attached to the question. Also I have followed the following links to debug the issues:

beam.smp is the Erlang vitual machine used by CouchDB (as CouchBase) for serving and indexing your DB. So it's where the magic happens.
