nothing left, the starts swapping as well until that is completely used up.

Since you are using MySQL 5.7, you can consider enabling memory instrumentation in the Performance Schema:

UPDATE performance_schema.setup_instruments SET ENABLED = 'YES' WHERE NAME LIKE 'memory/%';

That may help to locate where the memory is used.

To monitor the memory usage use either the sys.memory_% views (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/sys-schema-views.html) or the Performance Schema summary tables (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/memory-summary-tables.html).

Note that there is a little extra overhead instrumenting the memory.
