[JDEV] Advice on how to investigate a memory leak

Hi all !
I have a jabber server with custom modules of mine (a mysql layer and a http
I use the current stable release, jabberd 1.4.1
It seems I have a memory leak problem...
It seems jabberd (or one of the modules I wrote) is eating ~400 Mo/Day.
FYI the load of the machine is ~1500 jabber logins per day, with an average
of 15 messages sent/received per user.
For now I work around the problem by restarting the server every morning, as
been unable to find the source of the problem.
After careful re-re-re-reading of my work I could not find the thinko.
So my question to you guys are:
- can the memory leak come from the (stable) jabberd code version ?
I'm interested in hearing from people using jabberd 1.4.1 and having
comparable number of users logins/day...
- if not, do you know where I could find documentation about the memory
in jabberd (meaning: maybe I did not understand how to use pools, or what
was going to be freed after a handler is called)
- do you have ideas on how I could find the source of this leaks ? Some
tools maybe ?
Thanks in advance !
