I work for a company that resells space on Win2k3 servers from a major supplier. Every day sites are down. Whenever I talk to the company I get told that the application resource pool has had to be restarted and that this is an issue with Win2k3 servers and we just have to put up with it. To me this sounds like bulls**t. Anyone else ever experienced a situation where this happens for half an hour or so EVERY day?
thanks for the solution but we're just a reseller on someone else's box and the hosting company seems to just want to restart the flippin' thing rather than rtying to find the source of the problem. We're going to leave them as soon as we sort of a better alternative
You hosting company is not lying. This is a known issue. They must watch the web sites regularly and recycle the application pool if needed.
The reason of this problem may vary. Sometimes a bad script code may hang or crash the app. pool or sometimes IIS hangs itself without any reason.
