ASP.NET not using enough memory? - ASP.NET General

    Default ASP.NET not using enough memory?

    I have a W2K asp.net web site (ver 1.0.3705 ) that does not appear to
    be using RAM as well as it could be. Looking at the performance
    counters I see the following:

    aspnet_wp.exe process
    Mem Usage 100Meg
    Virtual Memory size 80Meg
    Virtual bytes 576Meg
    Pages Faults/sec 100

    Physical RAM 1024Meg
    Available RAM 612Meg
    Virtual Memory 1536Meg
    Total Memory in Use 318Meg

    Why is virtual memory being used when three is plenty of available
    RAM? I would think that using more RAM would limit the paging that I
    see happening. In the example above the web site is not experiencing
    much of a problem, but occasionally the aspnet_wp virtual bytes raise
    above 1700Meg and there is a noticeable slowdown. When this happens,
    there is still plenty of free RAM that is not being used.

    Would the aspnet_wp.exe process use more RAM if I upgraded to 2Gig?
    Is there a way to have this process use a larger percentage of the
    existing 1Gig?

    Thanks

    Default Re: ASP.NET not using enough memory?

    Under machine.config file in the <processmodel> tag there should be an
    attribute called memoryLimit. This is the maximum percentage the
    ASP.NET worker process will use. Increase it and it should use more
    of the system memory.
