Hello Nav,

there is one or more processes that doesn't release memory

try to use

sh proc mem | inc Free

to monitor the amount of total Free memory over time.

Verify if there is any feature you can remove from the router.

Hope to help

The symptoms sound like there is a memory leak (and the mention that you are running a deferred release supports that assumption). So in addition to the suggestions from Guiseppe I would suggest that you upgrade the software on the router to a more recent version, in which hopefully the memory leak is fixed.
