DLLHost.exe and IIS

Hello All,

For some reason, the DLLhost.exe is using 100% of my CPU. I believe it's an ASP page that's causing this but not sure. What is the best way to find out why this is happening?

OS: Windows 2000 Advanced Server

This is a production server and I have 10000+  ASP pages.

Thanks and Regards,

Yes, It is most probably bad asp code.

Is there just the one application?  If not, make sure that isolation is HIGH on every application, which may help to prevent problems on one application bringing down all others with it.

You might also try looking through the web server logs for those pages that have unusually high process time or event viewer application log entries for clues.

If you upgraded to IIS6, you'd be able to isolate every application entirely, and then at least know which one app is causing the problem.

I suggest you install IIS Diagnostics Toolkit for help. You can dig into the iis web log for more info by using logparser. IIS dump analysis... A lot of features for IIS troubleshooting and it supports 4.0 - 6.0. So IIS 5.0 on win2k is supported.


Also, you may go to systeminternals to download
It could help you to trace the dllhost.exe is working with which dll.
