I have not turned on any expclicit auditing, but I do use SELinux on the IPA 
servers, and have the
/var/log/audit/audit.log from all the SELinux activity. Is that what you're 
referring to?

Yes. most of the Nagios checks is being done every 5 minutes.

I agree, I'm not sure how to proceed in troubleshooting and finding the memory 
leak.
