FIX: Memory leak occurs when you run DBCC CHECKDB against a database in SQL Server 2014
Assume that you have a database that has columnstore indexes in Microsoft SQL Server 2014. When you run DBCC CHECKDB command against the database, a memory leak occurs under the MEMORYCLERK_SQLQUERYEXEC clerk. The memory under that clerk increases every time when you run DBCC CHECKDB command, until all available memory is consumed.
Note The memory object that results in the leak is MEMOBJ_COLUMNBATCH. It is created under the memory clerk MEMORYCLERK_SQLQUERYEXEC.
The issue was first fixed in the following cumulative update of SQL Server.
