I have an ASP Classic application that runs currently in IIS6, but often due to the original programmer not following "best practices" this application throws an Out of Memory error after several hours.
Originally, I had asked this question on StackOverflow in reference to the original problem.
The ideal solutions would be to migrate the application to .NET, or to troubleshoot the raw code to find the memory leakage and remedy it. However, there are nearly a million lines of code...and it has taken time to find various problems and fix them and more time is required to find further memory leaks.
My question is: Would IIS7 handle VBScript memory usage better or more efficiently than IIS6 that it would be an improvement? Is it worth it to migrate the application to IIS7 to help alleviate this problem? Obviously the entire problem would not go away, as there are still leaks, but would it improve?
The application is running on Windows Server 2003.
