comment How do you free up a port being held open by dead process?
We had this same issue -- and using Process Explorer saw that Dr. Watson was holding onto the old PID. We searched (Find) for the port that the service was attempting to open, and then saw 3-4 entries for Dr. Watson and the PID it was using. Strangely enough, we didn't have to implicitly KILL anything. Seems like that process 'woke it up' and it disappeared. Next time we tried to restart the service, it came up fine.

You have autoConfig = true. Can you have that enabled and customize the threads?

Sure, where exactly do I find the SSMS connection settings to copy/paste?

comment How to troubleshoot network from customers perspective?
Negative. To them, we are just another site (like Google, Bing) so they typically see an issue with our site, then test those sites to 'make sure' its not their internet connection that is down, then they pull the fire alarm.

comment WHEN does IIS 6.0 Application Pool CRASH with memory issues?
Awesome answer. Your first few sentences helped wrap my mind around what was happening. I think our DebugDiag memory dump confirmed fragmentation, so we're investigating if we can slow that down on those heaps!

comment Maximum amount of memory per session with IIS/.NET
Thanks for the reply. Sessions are InProc and server is Win2k3/32 Bit. Basically, the application performance suffers and users start seeing timeouts and various other memory related issues.

comment DHeapmon not reporting expected number of total desktops in IIS6
"To get additional desktop heap(s) you need to run seperate pools with separate credentials." Thats what I needed :) Okay, so with that said, even if the issue is ultimately with the application code -- could I tune things from the server end by running multiple pools with separate credentials? That way, instead of sharing ONE desktop heap with ALL sites -- each site/app pool will have its own heap to use up. Make sense?

comment COM+/Desktop Heap errors in IIS affecting sites at random?
That was my initial consideration :) My question is, how does this limit get reached for a specific app pool? All the app pools on my box are non-interactive....
