can't stop Qlik Sense Engine Service

After upgrading to 2.2.4 server encountered a problem. I can not stop the service Qlik Engine.

My server has 16Gb ram and Qlik Sense Engine service consumes 90% of RAM.

Try stop this service for cleanup cache and backup files.

And service stiks as "Stoppping"  and wait 20 min. Then service killed.

The engine service will not stop and is using 99% of CPU. Memory consumption is 18%

This started with users complain that open panel just shows the bubbles forever.

The Engine will not stop even when I use "End Task".

The engine exit log shows

It has now been "stopping" for over 20 minutes.
