Anyone else noticed their web farm controller server memory creeping up if left alone?
I have two web farms, both the same set up i.e. one control server, 32 servers in farms of 4. inetmgr.exe sits about about 11mb when started. If I leave the farms alone after about 2 weeks the memory used by the process has crept up to around 2.5gb. The
server has 4gb. The only way i can find to reduced the size is to stop the process and restart.
Any one seen this or know of a solution?
IIS 7.5 running in Windows 2008 r2. wff 2.2.

No one? Not even Microsoft? This is a pretty big flaw in WFF to go unnoticed.

Yes, I noticed this. It appears to be caused by people leaving their IIS GUI open, when not in use. Over time it accumulates memory leak until it finally crashes the server.
Solution. Always close the GUI when done.

I am experiencing the same problem, no GUI opened. Memory used by WFF just gets more and more until server freezes. This freezing of the controller sometimes leads even to a teardown/offline-taking of the farm... Ugly... IF the crashed controller starts
up again, web farm service provisions the servers and opens them on the LB (self written LB plugin similar to the F5 one)
No solution out there yet?

I have the same problem.
Leaving the MMC console on definately makes the problem worse; haven't looked at the ARR server for a while, but now it runs using about 3,07Gb! My initial memory usage (on fresh start) is about 26Mb
Not sure how to proceed, anyone tried any hotfixes ? I will test upcoming couple of days if disabling Disk Cache in ARR will help.
For testing purposes, i will leave the MMC open..!

Has anyone raised a support case with Microsoft?

Is it problem with WFF or ARR?
I have a couple of WFF servers and there is no problem with them. I have two ARR servers (one of them is with WFF installed) where the problem with memory leak appears. Nobody logged to server, only normal production work, application and platform provisioning
disabled, caching disabled.
Today I had machine crash because WebFarmService.exe would like to use more than 16 GB of memory (server with 4 GB RAM). Only regular web farm service restart is helping to have it in good conditions...
Event ID 2004
I have memory dump of WebFarmService.exe process when it grows to 3,5 GB. How to check whats inside?

Did you manage to solve this memory leak issue?
