Aspnet worker process recycling

P: n/a
Just wondering if anyone has aspnet process recycling set up in any
production environments. Our worker process memory gets out of control
after being up for about a day or so and we were thinking about setting up
some thresholds on memory usage.

Any experiences using this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

what do you need to know? I believe I have one site set to with something
like a 100mb limit threshhold (might be lower/higher, dont remember).
Setting it up is no biggie, just dont set it too low to kill your site.

Just wondering if it caused any problems. Like killing sessions or messing
up a request if it was in the middle of processing a page when it restarts.

thanks

I believe the sessions will be lost.

Yup. That it can/will.
But then again, if it spikes that high/hard your sessions are probably going
to timeout anyway. Better to recycle that app pool then recycle the entire
server's pools.

That's weird because we've been testing this internally by setting the
timeout to 1 MINUTE, and then pounding pages that all use session and they
work fine. If the session was lost, the page would error.

?

Oh, I think why we don't lose session state is because we're using an actual
state server, so our state is not stored in the aspnet worker process.

thanks.
