I've been able to narrow down on my system that enabling "Evolution Data
Server" for Access to the Google Calendar is the trigger for this memory
issue. See the three screenshots. I even removed and reauthorized the
Google account access with no change.

First screenshot shows the Evolution Data Service disabled and memory function 
is normal.
Second is toggling the Evolution Data Service from off to on. After ~10-5 
seconds memory consumption appears at a rapid rate.
Third is after switching Evolution Data Service from on to off and killing the 
indicator-datetime-service process showing the memory issue no longer exists.

If Evolution Data Server is not switched to off killing the indicator-
datetime-service process only restarts memory levels at the initial
value and consumption growth appears nearly immediately following its
automatic resume.

  memory leak in indicator-datetime

Status in indicator-datetime package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrading from 16.04 to 16.10 on the System76 Serval WS
  indicator-datetime-service is consuming all the system memory from
  3.7GB up to 32 GB in 30 seconds. The system kills the indicator-
  datetime-service process and indicator-datetime-service restarts and
  memory consumption repeats until killed again. All swap memory is
  consumed in this pattern.
