Nginx memory usage increases significantly after SSL offloading.
This is only seen when ssl offloading is done with the HSM device.

There were multiple reports about memory issues with OpenSSL engines (see #2316 for the most recent example; note 2316#comment:4 for a possible workaround which might help). There isn't much nginx can do about it, unfortunately, this is something to debug and fix in the relevant engines.
