Which Site Hanging IIS6 Application Pool?

I have an application pool in IIS6 which serves about 20 different webs, every now and then the process becomes unresponsive and needs to be manually recycled.
Apart from isolating every website (or every site with scripts), does anyone have any tips on how to:

1. Determine which is the problem site
2. And/Or which script in particular (asp/php, etc) is causing the process to hang.

Thanks in advance.

the best way to do it is (yes, sorry) make a seperate application pool for each site.  if you make a different *user* for each site as well, then in task manager, look for the running tasks in task manager - you will be able to identify each web site (and app pool) by the owner username.

Cheers.

Actually after you have your sites in different application pools the best way to figure out which one is which is by using a script included with the OS.  The reason being is because most people have them run under the NETWORK SERVICE account.  

Check out the following link to help identify which w3wp.exe process is associated with which application pool.
