We are having a asp.net application. We have deployed the application in IIS 7.0 on Windows server2008. The problem is that after 5-6 request if we check the memory utilization of the w3wp.exe, it shows almost 100% memory utilization. Because of which the server becomes slow.And nothing can be done. We have to kill the w3wp.exe process and then only the memory gets free.
Even after logging off the memory is not getting freed. And w3wp.exe retains the amount of memory allocated to it.
We have created separate application pool for our application but still the problem exists. Would you please help me out.

Thanks & Reagrds,
