Issue:
ntevl probes configured to monitor event logs that do not exist on the Windows server using the polling mode appears to leak memory over time.
Resolution:
To resolve this, the following changes were made to the ntevl configuration:

- Change the Run Type from "Poll" to "Event"
- Specify a locale specific encoding (like UTF-8 for English) as the Output Encoding value
- Specify a locale specific encoding (like UTF-8 for English) as the System Encoding value
