Stop w3wp from holding database connections open after exit RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-805433916 posted

    We have an internal ASP.Net 3.5 application that opens Pervasive SQL databases, reads the data, and then closes the connection. Unfortunately, when the user exits the application, and even when they close their browser, the w3wp process seems to be holding the PSQL database connections open, which is causing licensing issues for us. I would like the w3wp process to release the database connections once the last user has exited from the ASP.Net application.

     How can I get w3wp to release the connections? 

    Someone told me that the Powershell command, "gps w3wp | kill" will stop the w3wp process. Is there any way I can automate this, so that the process will be killed automatically when the last user exits our ASP.Net application?
