How to determine if a process has a potential memory leak with the TOP command.

 

 Tasks: 180 total,   1 running, 179 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.2%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni, 99.8%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Mem:   6117864k total,  5964160k used,   153704k free,   245404k buffers
Swap:  6289436k total,        0k used,  6289436k free,  4725764k cached

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
 2355 root      20   0  415m  35m  19m S  0.3  0.6  33:30.67 timestensubd

 

If the TOP command shows a process continually increasing values in the VIRT and RES column is this a symptom of a memory leak?
