AWS – Windows EC2 – IIS worker process consuming increasing memory

  amazon, amazon-ec2, amazon-web-services, iis, windows

I have a Windows EC2 instance running and having some issues with IIS Support worker using increasing amounts of memory. When I recycle the default app pool the support worker process starts at around 500MB and starts climbing to close to 4GB.

Current app pool recycling settings set at recycling every 1740min. Is it ok to change it to every 60 minutes or should I be checking something else before? Thank you.
