I have two servers running applications. Sometimes applications are too slow and memory usage seems exaggerated.



OS: Microsoft Windows 2003 R2

Memory: 4GB

Processor: Intel Xeon L5520 2.27GHz

Number of pools in IIS: 108 (two sites to each pool)

Average memory in use: 8.91 GB (Already using pagefile memory)


OS: Microsoft Windows 2008 R2

Memory: 8GB

Processor: Intel Xeon L5520 2.26GHz

Number of pools in IIS: 14 (two sites to each pool)

Average memory in use: 2.84 GB

This hardware is compatible with the demand that was allocated?

It is normal IIS using too much memory?

Its cut through the manager?

Is that 216 websites on one server? If so, there's your problem. – Nathan C May 28 '13 at 18:29

Server #1 is way overloaded for what you're tossing at it. You need to either a) add more RAM and possibly a second processor if supported, or b) get another server and move some sites around.
