Rapid increase in Gen 0 collection

I am stressing an ASP.Net 2.0 website to investigate a memory leak. I have set up perf. mon counters including Private Bytes, Available MBytes and all the .Net CLR Memory counters. I am seeing the private bytes increase with time. Available MBytes is decreasing but not at the same rate as Private Bytes. # Gen 0 collections has just increased rapidly! It started off being in a range, and then just shot up! Similar increases for Gen 1 and Gen 2. However, % in GC has remained fairly low (avg. 3%) compared to Processor utilization (75%).
The difference between Private Bytes and # Total bytes in all heaps is also large.

Anyone know how to interpret this? Any help appreciated!
Thanks!
