Ok thanks Scott. The problems I ran into that led me to discover that 3 worker processes were running was some odd caching behaviour, I then found out that:
“Because Web gardens enable the use of multiple processes, each process will have its own copy of application state, in-process session state, caches, and static data. Web gardens should not be used for all applications, especially if they need to maintain
state. Be sure to benchmark the performance of the application before deciding whether Web garden mode is appropriate"
I will set the app pool back to 1 worker process for the time being until we learn a bit more about it.
That is normally 1 and for 95% of the cases, it's better at 1, no matter how many sites are in the app pool. That allows multiple app pools to serve the sites (it won't balance sites across the 3 app pools, it will just have 3 app pools each handling all 3
