Why am I getting a VMware alert about the Data Service container running low on heap memory?

From a customer: 

I keep getting the following alert: >> The Data Service container process is running low on heap memory (> 90% utilized).
Is there anything we can do about that?

This VMware alert can be ignored. It’s a known bug with no known resolution and is cosmetic only. It has no impact on the performance of your VMware cluster.
