possible memory leak?

We have an application that is running on tomcat 5.0.25 and the memory is gradually increasing until it gets to a point where the app slows down and eventually, users start to get kicked out and back to a login prompt. Just wondering if anyone else has experience a similar issue - I'm not sure if it's the garbage collector not working properly - and if so, is there a way to adjust that within tomcat? Thanks!
