What can cause soft page faults in the w3wp-process? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Before we made an update to a web application we had about 3000 soft page faults/sec (for all processes on the web server). The web server only host one web application.
    After the update we have a peak on soft page faults/sec of about 50000!

    We have tried to check the source code for obvious mistakes, but have not found anything so far. We are pretty sure that the increase of page faults has to do with the code since the problem began directly after the code update.

    So we need help on what type of code you can write that causes soft page faults.

    Thank you!
