Our Web server keeps on freezing intermittently. when ever it hangs we have to restart the machine inorder to make it function again.

The machine has windows 2000 & has enough RAM. The .Net framework installed is 1.1.4322.0 and it hosts an ASP.Net 1.1 web application.

I checked the Event log and did not find any errors in that. Also we have error logging enabled from IIS.I looked at that log file too but could not find any errors noted.

how can I figure out what is causing the server to not respond? Is there any inbuilt reports that can be enabled in Windows or ASP.Net, Visual Studio.

Please advise.

Do you have DOS attacks on that machine?  Have you observed the number of connections?  RAM in use, etc?

For IIS, in
C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles
are some log files.

which version of iis are you using?
Are you running this app in a separate application pool? Else you can try that.
Is the worker process crashing at the time of freeze? You can also see system/application exception logs using eventvwr

I think the worker should automatically restart.

when the server crashes, before you reboot... look in Task manager Performance and see
if there is a lack o memory or the CPU is pegged.

Also, Run
perfmon.msc application

In there add performance counters, for webservice

Have it running tracking things and when it locks up, save the log, then review it... maybe this will tell you what is going on.

do you have the latest updates and patches for the OS and IIS?
