Recently we moved to a new hosting infrastructure and our web site, every 30 min or so, comes to a halt and then recovers ...

What we noticed by looking at the performance monitor is that while we have no problem with the CPU/Memory/Disk the number of TCP connections suddenly drop sharply from 90-100 to a flat line of 15. Any ideas??

Server : Windows 2008 R2 Web Server: IIS

Thanks, Eden


What are your application pool's settings set to ?
Did you keep the defaults ?

  • We didn't change the default settings. How it is related to the dropping of connections? – Eden Feb 21 '12 at 10:14
  • There might be settings to recycle workers... just a thought. – adaptr Feb 21 '12 at 10:23
  • A drop in the number of connections and the server dropping connections are two different things. – joeqwerty Feb 21 '12 at 11:53
