Session Timeout and Application Pools

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have an intranet site with about 180 users on it.

One IIS server with 4 webs...of which one web gets 95% of trafic.

Occassionally the web would get slower....and slower...and slower...and then stop
Did searches for open connections etc...all that was fine.

So I set the Application Pools to recycle every 2 hours from 8am - 6 pm with an hourly reset in the busiest part of the day...12 - 3pm.

NOW...It seems that I'm dumping sessions when its recycled.

What is the best solution...I have these folks doing data entry...walk away to a meeting and leave form open...come back...and everything dumps.

Any ideas?
