Was anything changed on the application side? Look at the event logs.
Without knowing what the issue is it is difficult to suggest a course of action. It sounds as though nothing crashing.
How much memory is available in the system do you use a common pool for all your application, or do you have a pool for each application?

What uses this 'App_pool' check the configuration how many workers do you have? Sometimes more is worse as you may have worker process that are doing nothing except consume memory resources.
What is the recycling
