I've finally decided that it was time to do another WikiPlex release. It's been awhile since the last release (March of this year), but a lot of things have changed over time that I finally officially package a new version up. The CodePlex website continues to use WikiPlex, and I'm (read more...)

virtual memory is not released in asp.net

We are getting OutOfMemoryException in our Asp.Net WebService (on a 32 bit machine) and while analyzing the problem we found that when we release some memory in .Net (and call GC just to be sure it is collected), the "Process/Private Bytes" counter of the aspnet_wp goes down, but the "Process/Virtual Bytes" does not. Here is a simple test method: It allocates blocks of 10MB until all the memory is filled. Then it releases everything and finally allocates a 100MB block. (The sleep statements are there so you can observe memory usage in performance monitor)     [WebMethod]     public void MemFragmentationTest()     {       const int allocSize = 10000000;  // 10 MB       List<byte[]> buffers = new List<byte[]>();       // allocate       while (true)       {         try         {           buffers.Add(new byte[allocSize]);           Thread.Sleep(100);         }         catch (OutOfMemoryException)         {  &n

ThreadPool problems even after installing fix - Threads are created slowly after they are released



I have a net.tcp service hosted under IIS which is being hit concurrently by 300 clients. After doing a lot of configuration (throttling, maxconnections etc) I show that I have a thread pool problem and requests are not served quickly enough, because thread pool creates new threads every half second. There is no error. My problem is that my clients are not served quickly enough. I configured the thread pool using SetMinThreads but nothing (I also configured SetMaxThreads accordingly). Then I discovered that there is a .NET 3.5 bug and I installed the corresponding fix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976898). Now the behaviour I get is the following...

When the 300 clients hit the server, the server opens concurrently 300 threads (I see more than 300 threads for w3wp process in task manager) and clients are served very fast. If after this there are 300 more concurrent clients, they are being served by reusing the previous threads. Excellent!!!

However, if I let the server idle for about 10 seconds, the threads are released! w3wp threads in the task manager drop to around 25. If after this again 300 clients hit the server thread pool starts again to create threads slowly (one every half second)! Why is that?
