> Hi Guys,
> Python version : 2.2.2
> PyXML Version : 0.8.2
> I'm using PyXML API in my project and I have a strange  behaviour. I dont know if its a memory leak problem or not.
> The problem I'm expreriencing is the following:
> - I have a server receiving queries of audit and inventory of the system. The server creates XML dom for each query it receives.
> - Before receiving the queries, I take a look to the memory used by my server and I see that its 9 Megs
> - When the server starts processing the first audit the memory grows up to 36 Megs 
> - but the memory is never released. but the strange is that when I do another audit, the memory dont grow anymore.
> - How I can confirm that there is a memory leak?
> - How I can free this this memory ?
> - Is it normal that a dom takes all this memory ?
> I was using 4Suite API and I found a memory leak. Its why I'm using PyXML now, Its slower and it takes more memory.
> Thanks for any hints
