WSSADMIN.EXE and OWSTIMER.EXE Memory Leaks

Labels:

Windows SharePoint Services Administration (WSSADMIN.EXE ) and Windows SharePoint Services Timer (OWSTIMER.EXE ) are processes which always take up most of the memory on my Dev Env. SharePoint App Pools and SQL Server do take lots of memory but I do IISRESET very often and SQL Server is also very reasonable but WSSADMIN.EXE and OWSTIMER.EXE really consume ridiculous amount of memory.

 MindSharp team has an stsadm extension for resetting OWSTIMER

Spencer Harbar has a good tool to recycle Application Pools (Screenshot below), I wish in future releases it could be extended to include WSSADMIN.EXE RESET and OWSTIMER.EXE RESET ... but until then a batch file with below commands will do it.

 

net stop "Windows SharePoint Services Timer" net start "Windows SharePoint Services Timer" net stop "Windows SharePoint Services Administration" net start "Windows SharePoint Services Administration"
