Setting The Physical Memory Limit In Iis 7.5 Cause The Garbage Collector To Operate More Aggressively?

Apr 1, 2011

I am currently undertaking load testing of a 4.0 web application hosted on a 64bit 2008 server (iis 7.5).

The purpose of the load testing it to determine the maximum memory usage by the web application if every page is cached simultaneously.

To evaluate this I set the output cache duration of the pages to 900 seconds then I request each publicly accessible url via xenu link sluth. This effectively request 20,000 or so pages.

To monitor memory usage I am using both Windows performance monitor and Redgate memory profiler 7.0.

I have run the test twice, test 1 with the physical memory limit set to the default 0, and test 2 with the physical memory limit set to 921600 (900mb).

Here is what I have observed,

In both tests the application pool is never recycled.
In test 1, the worker process memory usage grows to 1,300mb. (Above the memory limit of test 2)
In test 2, memory usage grows to 720mb.
In test 2, memory usage grows to 720mb.
In test 1, the unused memory allocated to .Net grows to 700mb
In test 2 it grows to 150mb.

does setting the physical memory limit in iis 7.5 cause the garbage collector to operate more aggressively?

C# - Setting Private Memory Limit For Application Pool In IIS 7 Increased Page Faults Before Crossing The Limit

Aug 16, 2010

I have set Private Memory limit of 200mb in IIS 7 for an application pool. The Private Working Set memory(Task Manager) for the application is always below 125mb but the number of page faults have increased a lot and application cache is getting cleared frequently after setting the limit.

I haven't set any limit on Virtual Memory.why the cache is getting cleared even when the Private memory used is below the allocated memory?

Localization :: Cannot Fix Or Limit User To Setting PC Regional Setting To UK

Dec 23, 2010

I have develop a web application. I have put my web application in my server and user can access from any location.

My server regional and setting is English (US). Now my problem is

1) When user access to my system and his pc setting is English (UK), it will prompt and error

and after i debug i suspect it is because of Datetime conflict (dd/MM/yyyy and MM/dd/yyyy)

2) I cannot fix or limit my user to setting his/her pc regional setting to UK

So what can i do in my web application solve this issue?

(Can i write any code in my client side (.aspx) to convert or do standardization to US)

C# - How To Exceed The 60% Memory Limit Of IIS7 In Caching Application

Jun 11, 2010

Pardon if this is more serverfault vs. stackoverflow. It seems to be on the border.

We have an application that caches a large amount of product data for an e-commerce application using ASP.NET caching. This is a dictionary object with 65K elements, and our calculations put the object's size at ~10GB. Problem:

The amount of memory the object consumes seems to be far in excess of our 10GB calculation. BIGGEST CONCERN: We can't seem to use over 60% of the 32GB in the server.

What we've tried so far:

In machine.config/system.web (sf doesn't allow the tags, pardon the formatting):

processModel autoConfig="true" memoryLimit="80"

In web.config/system.web/caching/cache (sf doesn't allow the tags, pardon the formatting):

privateBytesLimit = "20000000000" (and 0, the default of course)
percentagePhysicalMemoryUsedLimit = "90"

Windows 2008R2 x64

Nothing seems to allow us to exceed the 60% value.

See screenshot of taskman.

AJAX :: PageMethods Results Size Limit / Is There A Setting In The Web.config Somewhere To Handle Pagemethod Buffer Size

Mar 24, 2010

I am using PageMethods to send a few parameters to a webmethod in my codebehind. The method runs a stored procedure and uses the results to build a string that I am returning from the method.

Everything works fine until I try to include too many records in my results..

Once the results I am trying to return hit about 70K, the pagemethod times out even though it is taking about 1 second to process the results.

Is there a buffer limit or limit on the size or results returned from a pagemethod and if so, where can this be set or changed?

Is there a setting in the web.config somewhere to handle pagemethod buffer size?

Error Occurring When Using Wcf To Run Query - Memory Gates Checking Failed Because Of The Free Memory

May 21, 2010

I am building an application, using II6 on windows server 2003 (vps hosting).

I am confronted with an error I didn't receive on my development machine (windows 7, iis 7.5, 64 bit).

When my wcf service tries launching my query running against a local sql server this is the error I receive:

Memory gates checking failed because the free memory (43732992 bytes) is less than 5% of total memory. As a result, the service will not be available for incoming requests. To resolve this, either reduce the load on the machine or adjust the value of minFreeMemoryPercentageToActivateService on the serviceHostingEnvironment config element.

Error: Attempted To Read Or Write Protected Memory. This Is Often An Indication That Other Memory Is Corrupt?

Oct 11, 2010

I have both VS 2005 and 2008 installed on my machine. 2005 is fine. For 2008, literally any project I try to create gets this eror. I try stepping into the code, and the error occurs apparently before anything that I can trap is loaded. There is no information written to the event log. I have tried this with a "Hello World" webpage with nothing else going on. Seems unique to my Windows Server 2003 machine.

Attempted To Read Or Write Protected Memory. This Is Often An Indication That Other Memory?

Jan 26, 2011

I am maintaining C# .NET code written by somebody else, I get following exception few times,Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corruptThe code structure where I get the above exception is somethign like this,- it is using ref variables in following sequence,Variable-1 and variable-2 are local variables in App1, - App1: func1() which passes these variables reference to func2(), - App1: func2() passes same variables reference via .net remoting to another application (App2).-App2: does the same passes same received reference to another call 2 times.- The execption is occured while returning from App2.

(App1:func1(ref Var1, ref Var2) --> App1:func2(ref Var1, ref Var2) <---App1 .net remoting to App2--> App2:func3(ref Var1, ref Var2)--> App2:func4(ref Var1, ref Var2)-->variables getting updated and function returned to original caller)

My doubts are ,1. Is passing reference variables in such chain is correct? will it cause such exeption? Does .net support ref variable call directly?

C# - Outlook Converts Unicode Email Address To Garbage?

Jul 7, 2010

I am working on an ASP.NET project where we are updating all of our websites to support Unicode values. In one place, we are allowing users to enter their email address as Unicode. I use the following code snippet to display the "mailto" address hyperlink:

Response.Write("<a href='mailto:" + Server.UrlEncode(email.EmailAddress) + "'>" + email.EmailAddress + "</a>");

When I click on this link, it opens Outlook, but the email address displays as garbage text. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?From what I have heard, currently, email addresses only support ANSII characters, but Unicode characters are coming; That is why we are taking this step.

DataSource Controls :: Memory Leak - Server Will Crash - Log A Ton Of SQL Errors Stating That It Is "out Of Memory"

Jul 27, 2010

I have a memory leak somewhere that I cant find. Every few days my server will crash, and just before that I log a ton of SQL errors stating that it is "out of memory".

I cant find it anywhere, all of my connections are being disposed like so:

Then I call the connection from my pages like so:[Code]....

That is all pretty straight forward. The connection is disposed because it is implementing the USING clause. I am opening the connection in my connection manager class, and not where it is being utilized?Or, could the problem be in the below method I am using to populate a SqlDataReader:[Code]....

Now, at first it appears as though this could be the problem because the Connection isn't part of a USING clause, however doesn't the 'Data.CommandBehavior.CloseConnection' pretty much do the same thing. This makes sure that the connection is closed when the reader is closed, right? Here is how I call that above reader from my login page code behind:[Code]....

So the DataReader will get closed even without the .Close() because it is in the USING, and the connection should get closed because I specified it in the ExecuteReader paramters right?

ANTS Memory Profiler - Which Memory Should Be Looking At?

I have a memory issue on my websites and am trying to get to the bottom of it. I have downloaded the 14 day trial of ANTS Memory Profiler and have been playing with it to get a grip of what it's telling me. In the memory options on the timeline, I can see Bytes in All Heaps and Private Bytes etc but I am not sure which ones I should be focusing on to see where the memory spikes and doesn't go back down.I am profiling a ASP.NET website using ASP.NET 2.0.
