Virtual Memory Spike on Page Load

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Hello,

Each of my web site have its own application pool running either .NET 2.0 or 4.0. With all the websites stopped and only one remains, my Process Explorer, I noticed the website displays a virtual memory spike that goes up to 5 GB on process memory startup. Currently the App Pool for all websites are under a default setting. I tried tweaking the App Pool but it doesn't solve my problem.

 

I'm new in IIS7 so I might be missing the simple settings you know. Any help will greatly be appreciated.

IIS7 behaves like this because it been designed like that. It’s not like that the OS runs out of memory, IIS will pre-allocate size when necessary since it’s a 64 bit process, and the OS does this by design. This behavior has been seen by many users in process explorer and its nothing out of the ordinary.
