mpatrol
mpatrol is a link library that attempts to diagnose run-time errors that are caused by the wrong use of dynamically allocated memory, including writing to free memory and memory leaks.
 
 
winleak
The tool helps to detect any resorces leaks (memory, handles etc.) in any Win32 application. Based on hooking of Win API calls: no source code required, attaches to any running process. Call stack available. Agregates leaks by origin.
 
 
memwatch
memwatch is an ANSI C fault tolerant memory leak and corruption detection tool. Basically, you add a header file to your souce code files, and compile with MEMWATCH defined or not. Check the README and USING files for more instructions.
 
 
cppcheck
Static analysis of C/C++ code. Checks for: memory leaks, mismatching allocation-deallocation, buffer overrun, and many more.
 
 
dmalloc
The debug memory allocation or dmalloc library has been designed as a drop in replacement for the system's malloc, realloc, calloc, free and other memory management routines while providing powerful debugging facilities configurable at runtime. These facilities include such things as memory-leak tracking, fence-post write detection, file/line number reporting, and general logging of statistics.
 
Electric Fence
Electric Fence my malloc() debugger for Linux and Unix. This will stop your program on the exact instruction that overruns or under-runs a malloc() buffer
 
 
DUMA
DUMA is an open-source library (under GNU General Public License) to detect buffer overruns and under-runs in C and C++ programs.This library is a fork of Buce Perens Electric Fence library and adds some new features to it.
 
 
Leaky
Leaky is a program which will help you find memory leaks, and as of late, help you debug reference count problems with xpcom objects
 
 
Valgrind
The Valgrind distribution currently includes six production-quality tools: a memory error detector, two thread error detectors, a cache and branch-prediction profiler, a call-graph generating cache and branch-prediction profiler, and a heap profiler. It also includes three experimental tools: a heap/stack/global array overrun detector, a second heap profiler that examines how heap blocks are used, and a SimPoint basic block vector generator. It runs on the following platforms: X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, ARM/Linux, PPC32/Linux, PPC64/Linux, X86/Darwin and AMD64/Darwin (Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6)
 
 
Visual Leak Detector
Visual Leak Detector is a free, robust, open-source memory leak detection system for Visual C++.It's pretty easy to use. After installing it, you just need to tell Visual C++ where to find the included header and library file.
 
 
 
 
 
 
HeapAnalyzer
HeapAnalyzer allows the finding of a possible Java™ heap leak area through its heuristic search engine and analysis of the Java heap dump in Java applications.
 
Java heap areas define objects, arrays, and classes. When the Garbage Collector allocates areas of storage in the heap, an object continues to be live while a reference to it exists somewhere in the active state of the JVM; therefore the object is reachable. When an object ceases to be referenced from the active state, it becomes garbage and can be reclaimed for reuse. When this reclamation occurs, the Garbage Collector must process a possible finalizer and also ensure that any internal JVM resources that are associated with the object are returned to the pool of such resources. Java heap dumps are snap shots of Java heaps at specific times.
 
 
Eclipse Memory Analyzer
The Eclipse Memory Analyzer is a fast and feature-rich Java heap analyzer that helps you find memory leaks and reduce memory consumption.
 
Use the Memory Analyzer to analyze productive heap dumps with hundreds of millions of objects, quickly calculate the retained sizes of objects, see who is preventing the Garbage Collector from collecting objects, run a report to automatically extract leak suspects.
 
 
JProfiler
JProfiler is an award-winning all-in-one Java profiler. JProfiler's intuitive GUI helps you find performance bottlenecks, pin down memory leaks and resolve threading issues.
 
 
LLC
YourKit, LLC is a technology leader, creator of the most innovative and intelligent tools for profiling Java & .NET applications. The YourKit Java Profiler has been already recognized by the IT professionals and analysts as the best profiling tool.
 
With YourKit solutions, both CPU and memory profiling have come to the highest professional level, where one can profile even huge applications with maximum productivity and zero overhead.
 
 
TPTP
The Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project provides an open platform supplying powerful frameworks and services that allow software developers to build unique test and performance tools, both open source and commercial, that can be easily integrated with the platform and with other tools.
 
 
VisualVM
VisualVM is a visual tool integrating several commandline JDK tools and lightweight profiling capabilities. Designed for both production and development time use, it further enhances the capability of monitoring and performance analysis for the Java SE platform.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Visual Studio
The primary tools for detecting memory leaks are the debugger and the CRT debug heap functions.
