I have a system running a Java program and I believe it or something else is leaking memory. When the program is monitor for its memory use it de-allocates the memory as it is suppose to. But after a day or two the system ram is full and Kernel kills the process.

Are there any tools I can use in Linux to monitor memory Linux and find the leak or force clearing of memory? Free only seems to show me info.
