runtime memory usage by a c++ application


Hi,

i have a c++ application that consumes a lot of run time memory. It is a very large project with a lot of sub-modules. My target is to reduce the runtime memory usage as much as possible. Therefore i would like to know
if there is a tool that i can use to profile the code (note that i am not interested in checking for memory leaks / corruptions so Valgrind is not for my purpose) I need to know which module has the most static data like large arrays or a lot of variables to know where to start reducing.

Thanks however the tool you mentioned is to find errors,
i am interested in profiling the memory used not in leaks or corruptions.

thanks
