Tools for detecting memory consumption at run time

I am working on quite a large application. I have run "Valgrind" and was able to clear most of the leaks. But still the memory is still increasing when it is being used. Could anyone please let me know if there are any tools that help me in finding out leaks during run time and not when the appication stops/ends.

Hi djamit2001,
Take a look at

Looks like mtrace and dmalloc may be good for you.
