I just set up 5 Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard servers running Remote Desktop Services in a Session Collection.
The latest server I put on has 96GB of RAM and hosts 80 - 160 users. All users are simply getting web access with Firefox for the most part.
Every day since putting this on, I have had from one to three users' firefox instances balloon up to a maximum of 30GB(!!!!!) of memory consumed each day. On inspecting their traffic, it was usually either:
- Music Streaming
- Any flash content
Most users only had 1 or 2 tabs open. It appears that Flash is the culprit.
I have Flash fully updated to the latest version, and Firefox is running on the latest version. All OS updates have been done as well.
Why is this happening / how can I curb this? I can't have 3 users take up all of the server's resources.
