ASP.NET process recycling

Application recycling is a great feature that lets you configure an application so that ASP.NET automatically shuts it down and restarts it after a given period or a given number of client requests, or when it consumes more memory than the specified threshold. This feature is a lifesaver if the application progressively degrades its performance because of memory leaks - something that might happen if the application uses unmanaged resources. You control application recycling through one or more settings in the tag in web.config. For example, this setting recycles the ASP.NET application every hour:

    <processModel timeout="60" />
