Default php memory leak problem

Looks like I solved this problem. It had to do with

$xml = simplexml_load_file(URL);

I released the memory at the end of the script with

unset($xml);

... and now everything is good.

Here is the new chart. You can see the memory leak is not occurring anymore when running this script every 5 min in crontab.
