Not sure about windows.  Tried on Linux and Purify detects memory leak in
custom Apache modules.

used following options while compiling apache
    export CC="purify -follow-child-processes=yes gcc"

We tried using Purify for Windows version of Apache. It never detects
leaks in Apache Modules. When the modules are independenty tested using
Test Drivers Purify shows the memory leaks, but the same when integrated
with Apache it does not show leaks. Probably we might have done some
thing wrong. Would appreciate if some one explains about how to
configure the Apache modules with purify.

      I have developed a mod in apache . When a http request came, my
mod can do some work and release sources it created.
     It seam work fine  except when run it a long time .

I ever used valgrind (a memory leak tool), but it is not good for using
in apache mod .

Does any one know a memory leak tool can use in apache mod developing ?
