aspnet_wp.exe memory leak


C

i have an asp.net that seems to be leaking memory somewhere.
in an attempt to find it, i create a blank test.aspx page with one label on
it, and made this the default page for the site.
every time i refresh test.aspx the memory ussage for aspnet_wp.exe
increases.
why?

A memory leak is when memory that is allocated by an application is not
de-allocated prior to shutting down the app, and therefore is permanently
locked. It accumulates each time the application is run until the system
runs out of memory. What you're describing is the .Net platform and managed
code in action. If you continue refreshing the page long enough, you'll see
the memory go down as well. That is .Net Garbage Collection at work.
