RadiusNT AFAIK, doesn't have any general memory leaks. SQL Server
is configurable on the MAXIMUM amount of memory it can use (and its
in 2kb allocations, NOT 1, this can cause it to use a lot more
memory than you thought if configured wrong). SQL WILL use up to
its maximum on a busy system, too. Its DESIGNED that way.

Its actually fairly trivial to see memory usage, since task
maneger will show you a representation of memory used per task.
