High memory use for Adobe CEF Helper

I'm running the Creative Cloud, latest versions of everything, on a new iMac with Apple silicon and 16 gigs of memory. I notice more memory pressure than with my old Intel model, though it doesn't seem to affect performance. In looking into what might be driving high memory use I see that Adobe CEF Helper uses 2.88 gigs of VM compressed memory. Is that normal or a lot?

 

It's using very little CPU though, a problem I see other people have had.

Clearly that is a huge amount of memory and clearly a memory leak caused by a software bug in the programming.

 

From this support website:

 

If you are seeing excessive system usage of the Adobe CEF Helper process, or any other Adobe background process, and you have an individual membership, then please download and run the CC Log Collector Tool from http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html and begin a secure chat session at https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen so that the excessive usage can be investigated.

 

For more information on what the background processes are used for, see https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/adobe-background-processes.html.

 

If an organization manages the computer or has a Creative Cloud for Team or Enterprise membership, please contact the organization's help desk.  They can use the process listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/support/programs/enterprise-support-terms.html to open a support case on your behalf.

Good luck.
