Hi,

I am getting 95% of RAM used in my server just in one week. If i don't restart the dedicated server every week, it goes down and the website stops working.

It is built in Orchard 1.6, and i am using for storing things all the orchard features: ContentParts and ContentItems.

The online store contains 600 products.

Any clue about how to avoid getting ram too high?

Here it is the link to the site: Riders Colombia

Thx

Impossible to tell without in-depth information. But maybe, maybe this has to do with a bug where Orchard didn't close DB sessions. This bug was fixed in 1.8 (or maybe 1.8.1?).

Thx Piedone!! The migration to 1.8 would be very time consuming therefore very expensive!

Any idea about how to detect open db-sessions and close them?

If you have access to the SQL Server you can retrieve the number of open connections from some sys table.

Otherwise if you modify your local SessionLocator class to this: https://orchard.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#src/Orchard/Data/SessionLocator.cs you should be covered for this particular bug.
