Is there a way that makes the performance counter of the Process(total)\Private bytes to allocate memory over time to exceed the total of Memory\committed bytes to cause memory leak using Perfmon Tool of Windows?

like the attached picture which happened after approximately one week. It's clear that the private bytes were keep growing (allocate memory) whereas Committed bytes deallocated over time, how to simulate that work or do the same?

Thanks
