I have a development web server on a VMWare server that I develop and test my web apps on. Recently, I've noticed that while in visual studio, it will get pretty bogged down after a while. So I opened up task manager and noticed about 200 instances of vsjitdebugger - all with about 60-65k of memory usage. So, I thought I'd better close visual studio to end those processes. But even after I closed VS, all those vsjitdebugger processes were still there. So, I restarted the server - and they went away ... for a while. No program is running, freshly restarted and they are coming back, 1 by 1. Granted it's taking a while, but by weeks end, I'll probably have upwards of 200 again.

Anybody got any insight on what may be causing this? Or how I can find out what is causing this?

Hi, Im afraid I dont know alot about Visual Studio but this link has a lot of info on the subject http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/d0b8xh0y.aspx The process you are refering to is a debugger used in Visual Studio.
To trouble shoot why this is happening download the readme file and make sue your system meets the ninimum requirements http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/4c26cc39.aspx
