I'm using IIS 4.0 on NT 4.0 and database server is SQL 6.5.The problem is IIS hangs frequently and on rebooting the server its working fine.this seems to happen for every 2 hours.I also checked the idle process % it is well above 95% and inetinfo.exe is utilizing only 5% of CPU at the max.

Pls help me to come out of this issue.

Thanks
cdprem.

Disagree that IIS is 'big hell', but have had similar problems with NT4, IIS4 (but no SQL server) on an intranet.
Believe problem is due to IIS4 buffer overflow when other services are occupying server.

Advise you ensure only services you need are running.

Quick fix (manual intervention) using service pack supplied kill.exe which allows 'soft' reboot of IIS - takes around 10 seconds (without full reboot of server).

Medium fix is programmed local launch of kill.exe at regular intervals (e.g. 5am, 11am, 5pm, 11pm) by putting kill.exe in a .bat. You need to stick a couple of pings in to give IIS time to shut down before the relaunch command.

Hard fix is upgrade to IIS5 NT5.
