-------> Excessive Fail2Ban RAM Usage ヽ(ಠ_ಠ)ノ

Dear Virtualmin Community,

I recently installed a fresh CentOS 7 and Virtualmin/Webmin on a new VPS 4gb ram with 4 cores,

I am running LAMP, FirewallD and other email services,

in Virtualmin under Running Processes Fail2Ban is using 2.57 GB of memory, my current ram usage is 88% and I don't even have many virtual servers setup yet, the Fail2Ban memory usage is consistent and even after a reboot it eventually creeps back up.

Q.) Is this normal for Fail2Ban to consume so much memory?

Q.) Is it possible to safely some how limit the memory Fail2Ban can use?

Q.) Or should I simply replace Fail2Ban with SSHguard or another solution that uses minimal resources?

Thank you for any advice or help
