Growth of ServerDescription and AutoReconnect objects leads to memory leak

      Python 3.6.8

        My application use motor 2.0.0 and pymongo 3.11.0 to connect Mongodb cluster , but  when I mistakenly filled in IP as follows,

      connector = motor.motor_tornado.MotorClient(‘,’, 27017)

         There is a space character bewteen ',' and '', so the application cann't connect to mongos process.  But that doesn't affect the app because the first IP is available,and I find that the memory used by the application grows slowly.

        Then I use memory_analyzer tool to profile memory useage. There were 309 ServerDescription objects and 307 AutoReconnect objects at 2020-11-16 16:55:14, 

      6610 ServerDescription objects and 6607 AutoReconnect objects at 2020-11-17 10:26:43, the result shows both of the ServerDescription and AutoReconnect objects grows by 6301 in 63089 seconds , the frequency is consistent with the frequency of monitoring.
