Event ID 5010 - WAS - IIS "A Process application pool, failed to respond to a ping"

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am running a Windows Web Server 2008 (64bit) amd IIS 6.0. Every night around the same time, out event logs fill up with these warnings from Event ID 5010: "A process serving application pool XXX failed to respond to a ping."

We have a 24/7 Monitor on the web server and the server also does not respond to ping requests at the same time as these warning are showing up in the Event viewer.  

Any idea what is causing this and how to resolve it? Thanks
