Wikipedia defines a memory leak as follows:

In computer science, a memory leak is a particular type of unintentional memory consumption by a computer program where the program fails to release memory when no longer needed. This condition is normally the result of a bug in a program that prevents it from freeing up memory that it no longer needs.

Detecting memory leaks

There are a number of techniques to detect and avoid memory leaks.A number of commerical tools such as Redgats Ants profiler are very useful, but free tools such as Windbg are also invaluable (Windbg can also be used on a production server without requiring an install)
