The Problem we have:
We are currently having an issue where our web application is eating up a ton of memory in IIS which eventually causes it to crash.
This web application is mostly HTML and uses C# APIs. We have ran diagnostics on the app pool that hosts this server, and it appears as though system.string is eating up 5+ GBs of memory.
To temporarily “fix” the problem, we set the app pool to recycle once it hits 10 GBs. That said, it has made our web application unreliable.
We have the 16 GB process dump and we have some debug diagnostic reporting.
We are looking for someone who is familiar with C#, APIs, and IIS to come in and help us solve this problem quickly.
