newly created empty App Service Plan showing 60% memory percentage

AkScript 0 Reputation points

Basically, I Created a Basic (B1: 1) app service plan, I have not added anything to it yet but it is already showing 60% memory percentage, why is that?

I already have another app service plan with all app services stopped, it is also showing 60% to 70% memory percentage, I don't know where this consumption is coming from.

    Hello @AkScript

    The memory usage in Azure App Service Plans can sometimes be higher than expected due to various factors:

    • Even if you haven’t deployed any apps or all your apps are stopped, the App Service Plan still runs system processes that consume memory
    • If you have too many apps in the same app service plan, it could lead to high memory usage.
    • If you have apps running in your App Service Plan, they might be using more memory than you expect

    To investigate further, you can use the following tools:

    • Diagnostics tools: Azure provides diagnostics tools that can give you insights into what’s happening with your App Service Plan
    • Application Insights: This can give you more application-specific telemetry for your functions
    • Memory Analysis tool: This tool can provide insights into memory usage for each instance allotted to the App Service Plan

    Hope that helps.
