WSUS IIS worker process memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last week I had to reboot my server because the IIS Worker Process had consumed all the available memory. I hunted down the application pool that had done this, and it was WSUS. Memory usage keeps climbing; 5 days ago it was at 28%, now its at 40% and nothing is really going on.

    Is this a bug in WSUS, or am I missing a setting somewhere that would release this memory?

    Server 2012r2

    WSUS Version 6.3.9600.17477

    Private memory usage is set to 8000000

    Recycling is set to 1740 minutes
