I wrote a deamon like program in python and after a while I realized that it
consumes more and more memory over time. So my question is: How to debug
memory leaks in python ?
Of course I found the built-in profiler but it only helps to make
performance analysis. Is there a way (or a tools) to view all the instances
that are kept im memory by the interpreter ?

Thanks a lot,
