Memory leak detection

dh
Will GC.GetTotalMemory(true) reliably tell if a console app could have a
memory leak, given the nature of memory management of GC in .NET? Like
calling it two times, each at the beginning and right before exiting from the
app?

If not, can somebody shows me the steps of using CLRProfiler for .Net to
check memory leak of the app?

(Btw, I used Performance but it doesn't show memory leak. However I'm still
suspicious of it.)

Thanks!

Hello, dh!

Memory leak is an abstrack notion.
IMO to detect if application has mem leak you have to analyze its memory management
behavior.

Is it freeing memory?

Have a look at the following links
( http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread336255.html )
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_leak )
