Microsoft SQL Server 2016 may cause higher memory usage in the MEMORYCLERK_SQLSTORENG memory clerkwhen you compare it with SQL Server 2014 or earlier versions. This issue is more severe when large number of databases exist on an instance of SQL Server 2016. This is caused by a memory leak in parallel redo during database startup or server startup.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
