Can you see any processes which are using a large amount of a particular resource ? my usual way of working with a situation like this would be to identify anything which runs on this server (hardware or software) which isnt on other machines. Then if possible try running without it for a while, or installing it on a test server to confirm the suspicion.

You can try using a diagnosing tool such as sisoft sandra to examine the resources a service/app is using... but beyond that its going to need vendor assistance to fix it...and thats after you have located the issue for sure.

Memory Leak:
A memory leak is caused by an application or by a process that allocates memory for use but that does not free the memory when the application or process finishes. Therefore, available memory is completely used over time. Frequently, this condition causes the system to stop functioning correctly.
