High memory usage when hosted on Azure Websites

I've hosted my blog on azure websites under the shared mode option.

I'm finding that it uses up the maximum memory (max memory usage per hour is 512mb) and thus the site suspends due to exceeding a usage quota.

Is anyone else experiencing this? When in Reserved mode, it doesn't have a memory usage quota per site so doesn't have this issue. Is there a way to track down what is exactly being used? 

I've set up the warmup module to cache a few pages every 90 minutes, but even loading these pages only seems to cause the memory usage to go up.
