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.
