Confluence on Windows 2016 Server results in Page Table growing by 4k every few seconds

Confluence 6.4.3 on Windows 2016 Server appears to do be doing *something* that results in the Page Table growing at the rate of about 4k every few seconds. Verified by using SysInternals RamMap to inspect the discrepancy between running processes and free memory.

Within about 26 hours the Page Table usage has grown to about 800MB. On any other box I've looked at this is no where above 100MB at most, even after running for 3 or 4 weeks.

Eventually as the Page Table size increases more and more things get pushed to the pagefile and the box starts thrashing the disks. This results in Confluence and other things on the box getting increasingly sluggish.

Page Table usage never decreases when Confluence is running. The only way to reduce it entirely seems to be completely rebooting the box. When Confluence is stopped the Page Table never increases.

If Confluence is not started at boot then the Page Table usage does not creep up.

Logs show nothing of much use. Not really sure where to look next. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Issue appeared at some point within the last few weeks.
