python slowdown after a longish time of running (garbage collector)

i plan to use python for servers that should have pretty good
throughput. however, after my test server runs for a longer time
(constantly processing commands issued by clients) my measurements show
that the speed of commands that it processes slowly decreases to a
crawl. i suspect the problem is with the garbage collector.
is it normal behaviour of python garbage collector? can i help it by
deleting local variables in methods? is it better if i disable the
garbage collector and run it only after a longish time?
thank you for your ideas,
