aspnet_wp,exe - ASP.NET General

The .Net garbage collector runs at times and will free memory as necessary. It has no logical pattern though. I wouldn't worry about it. It will take care of itself.

    Coder Coder,

    I wouldn't rely on Task Manager to give you a good representation of memory
    usage. You will have much better information if you set up some Perfmon
    counters.

    It is normal for the worker process to use a fair amount of memory. As
    memory is needed the garbage collector will take care of it for you. You
    have little control on when an object is GCd.

    Hope that helps.
