Support asked me to try setting exceptions to AV per https://www.veeam.com/kb2034. On VEB service restart, it was using just over 1GB but was slowly climbing. 8 hours later it its settled back down to still just over 1GB. This is better but still very high, and should note that no backup has run yet since making these changes. I've forced a backup cycle and will check it again later.

Update, no change long term. Memory usage up to 16GB after another 8 hours and a backup.

Can you please temporarily uninstall the antivirus completely, and reboot the server to fully remove any low level drivers it may have installed? There are currently no known issues with memory consumption except those caused by certain misbehaving 3rd antiviruses...

I don't know what happened to to my last post, but I've uninstalled ESET and I'm monitoring the sql service memory usage.

It's been hovering around 330MB for a day now. It might be behaving now, but this is not a workable solution and I'm reinstalling the AV now.

After installing ESET NOD32 10.0.369.0 and the scheduled backup started, VEB's sql service jumped to 19GB.

Update, support had me apply a config change to VEB's sql server. Since then memory usage is holding at between 3.5GB and 4.5GB. While still quite bad, this is considerably better than it was.
