System.Data.SqlClient "Timeout expired" causing ASP.net web application to automatically restart.

Chris Langston

I have a Web Server running IIS 5 or 6 on Windows 2K and Windows 2003 Server
that is experiencing strange shutdown problems. We are using ASP.NET v1.1
and our application is written in VB.NET

Here's the scenario:

1. .NET Windows Client on a remote machine makes a web service call to
update tables on a Web Server running SQL Server 2000.
2. The Update is updating about 1000 - 3000 records doing simple update
statements like "Update transactions Set UpdateTime = '08/12/2003 04:30:00
PM' "
3. The SqlClient code is receiving the error message below:

Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the
operation or the server is not responding.
The statement has been terminated. at
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception,
TdsParserState state)

4. I have all my code wrapped in Try/Catch blocks so I see where I catch the
Exception and write this out to a log file.
5. I have code in the Application_End section of the Global.asax and I see
where a different Thread ID comes along and ends my running application.

You can see from the Above log file where the Application_Ends on a

onnection reset=false;connection lifetime=5;min pool size=1;max pool

I'm completely stumped as to what can be terminating my web application. I
have verified that I'm not touching the \bin folder of the web application
as I know that this causing web servers to restart themselves.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Chris,
Perhaps it is a setting in the machine.config file. Check under
<system.web> ...
<processModel.. There are many values here that can shutdown the aspnet_wp.

Also it is curious that your connection string sets pooling=false but sets
values used for pooling. I do not know if this would have any effect.

I have looked into the processModel configuration and I do not have
anything setup that would cause it to shutdown.

I discovered from my google research that the asp.net framework will
shutdown the aspnet_wp.exe if it determines that a Dead-Lock condition
has occurred; in this case, I don't see why this exception could be
determined to be a Dead-Lock condition unless the Framework is looking
at certain types of exceptions to detemine a "dead-lock" state.

I have experimented with both connection pooling or and off, but the net
result was the same. Whenever this Timeout exception occurs, so Thread
is coming along and terminating my Web Service.
