Hello all,

     We're maintaining a web-based application written with VB 6.0's IIS Application framework. The program executes in a web server and access SQL Server 2000 database on same machine. We meet a problem that the application slows down after execute for some while. We can see multiple instance of DLLHOST.EXE in Task Manager, these processes takes over all CPU time. We try stop and restart IIS Server in Internet Service Manager but DLLHOST.EXE seems cannot be stopped.

     Anyone knows what's the reason of multiple instances of DLLHOST.EXE executed and takes over all CPU time? How can we solve this problem? Any comments are welcome and thanks advanced.

Try to double check your code.

Visual Basic is notorious for memory leaks regardless of what microsoft tells you about automatic garbage collection.


Make sure you set all your objects to nothing. Especially those that you have created with the NEW keyword.

And make sure that  you dun have some funny bugs.. that was skipped by On Error Resume Next... and was never flagged... that way skipping the cleanup code altogether.

Separate dllhost.exe files :
one for each com+ package,
plus one system dllhost.exe,
plus one to host pooled websites (sites with Application Protection set to pooled level),
and one for each website with Application Protection set to high.
