Memory consumption greater in jdk11 images than in jdk8 images

      We noticed our Jenkins deployment in Kubernetes was going over our resource limits for memory a 4Gi on existing deployments and on new deployments.  This was causing restarts everytime we viewed a job or sent a remove build command to Jenkins. We noticed this on August 26th 2021

      We usually never hit that limit unless we are doing something abnormal. This issue was hapenning when nothing was going on with jenkins and persisted after deployment restarts, etc.

      The solution we found was to switch from the LTS image to the 2.306 image. We tried other images and they all had the same problem. Changing helm chart versions did not help either. After the switch to the 2.306 image, we had a 50% reduction in memory consumption and it stayed that way.
