I don't know where to put it (what topic) so I decided to put is in IS/ISP.
I have a problem with asp.net. I have a Win2k server SP2 running as a public webserver, hosting eight websites. Three of these websites are asp.net sites, these rest of the sites are 'normal' asp sites. Only the .net framework is installed on the webserver, not VS7. We use VS7 on another computer to develop the sites, and then we deploy these sites to the webserver.
It is a Pentium III 700, with 256MB registered memory. Besides the default software (Windows 2000 SP2, IIS5, Terminal Services in remote administration mode) there is some extra software installed: SendMail for NT 3.02, WebMaster ConferenceRoom 1.8, ColdFusion Server Pro 5.0 and Mailutilities Advanced Maillist Verifier.
The problem is that almost every day (just for the last four or five days) asp.net hangs. You request a webpage written in asp.net, and your internet explorer will show "web site found, waiting for reply" and that's it, it hangs here. 'Normal' asp pages are still running, in all sites. IISReset doesn't work, because the web service won't stop or start. Rebooting the server is the only thing that works, but this is not a long-term solution for the problem.
Nothing is written to the event logs, and I can't find anything unusual in the IIS log files. I ran the perfomance monitor, monitoring the CPU Utilization, the Physical disk/Current disk queue, the available memory and the IIS current connections (and some more), but I can't see anything unusual. I've search the knowledge base, but I can't find anything relevant, I don't even know how to define my problem!
Does anyone have an idea what a possible solution for the problem could be? Or does anyone know if I can increase the level of logging for ASP.NET?
