I've heard an unchecked gossip that Realtek drivers on Windows 2008 suffer from memory leakage. My computer with this network card and OS suffers exactly from this symptom - high memory consumption.

So, is there any way to measure how much memory each driver consume?

I started to write an answer to your question, and in looking up the syntax for the exact tools I've used in the past to do this, I came across this post:

The second answer seems to be most closely associated with the two tools I had in mind, namely poolmon and WinDbg. The explanation is a lot better than the one I would have had though ;)
