Before You Recycle That IIS Process
Manually recycling the IIS process is unfortunately sometimes a fact of life. This can be a really disruptive action if you have a number of users logged on, and you use InProc session state. Before you go recycling the process, check out a little tool called IIS Reporter.
This is an application to allow for quick view of how many people are connected to your IIS web server.
Recycling the IIS process resets all the sessions, so everyone will lose their session information if you use InProc. This little tool will help you know just how many people you're about to annoy.
Update: New link. Get IIS Reporter at http://www.iisreporter.com/. Thanks, Jim!
