Why IIS uses too much memory while my applications virtual memory and private memory is using a small amount?> RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web application (MVC/ .net 4.6.1) and when I try accessing it IIS consumes my memory and won't release it even after I stop the test. (2 GB after 5 minutes of testing and growing)

    I read some articles about memory leaks and therefore I've set up a DebugDiag to generate a user dump when the private bytes reaches 400 MB or Virtual memory reaches 600 MB but the rules never work.

    I don't understand what is going on here. if my application is using just a small amount of memory, why does IIS uses 2-3 GB? 

    * I couldn't find a forum for IIS/ memory leak so I guess this forum is the most relevant one. Please let me know if it it not
