    Accepted Solution

    Versions of MySQL/centos?

    It is unlikely that MySQL is leaking.
    Check your MySQL configuration.  You might have configured resource uses per connection/query beyond the available system resources.

    Assisted Solution

    Have you looked at tuning MySQL first? What processes are slowing your server down, eating your memory and are there any other applications sharing the machine that might be contributing to the problem?

    Valgrind is a wonderful tool useful mainly to debug memory related problems in C/C++ programs.
