I am using windows server 2008 R2 to only host one application (asp.net mvc3). The first time the initial page load was really slow.
In my app pool recycling setting, only "regular time intervals"(in minutes) is checked and the value is set to 1740. If I understand correctly, my app pool will be recycled every 29 hours. however, I noticed sometimes after a couple hours I go back to my web site, the page load is slow again. It seems like the app pool got recycled. this is the dev server, no traffic at all. Is it because there's no traffic so it recycles itself, even though the time intervals were set to 29 hrs?
