IIS takes too much memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    We have a server with CRM 2013 SP1 UR1 (with "Product updates") installed. Server is Windows 2012 Standard. SQL Server 2012 Enterprise is also installed on the same machine as CRM (it's development server).

    Ones server is started and CRM is opened in a browser, IIS (w3wp) starts to take a lot of memory up to 2Gb. When allocated memory is near 2Gb CRM becomes dead (no response). When this happens we see several "sql timeout errors" in trace. iisreset leads to the same situation

    We tried to disable all custom plugins, but with now affect. Server has enough memory (IIS takes not all available).

    What can we try to fix this problem?

  • hello,

    you have not specified how much RAM the machine has. SQL server can become quite resource intensive and can cause memory issues for the iis. Have you tried to move SQL server to another machine or add more RAM?.

    please try to see if you can limit the memory available for SQL server?.

  • The machine has 12Gb RAM. At the moment we don't have possibility to move SQL to another machine.

    SQL memory limit doesn't set. But SQL server consumes not more RAM than IIS - about 500Mb. And it almost doesn't grow.
