Web App on Azure Cloud - number of requests per second RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1753299103 posted

    I have my WebApp hosted on azure cloud.

    I have been told that my azure webapp is experiencing the following issue:

    "the server cannot handle more than 5 GET requests per second which is  a very low number and the cause for the 500 errors"

    To look for a solution, I started looking around in my azure panel during which I came across the following 2 items:

    • Creating a Load Balancer (Basic)
    • Scale up(web service plan) from 100 total ACU, 1.75 GB memory, A-Series compute equivalent >> 200 total ACU, 3.5 GB memory ,A-Series compute equivalent

    My question is if any of the above items either individually or combined could resolve the above issue?

    Thank you

    Hi engcanada,

    Normally, we can scale up current App Service plan for increased performance and throughput.

    the cause for the 500 errors

    You can try to remote debug the site or enable diagnostics logging for apps to troubleshoot the issue.

    Besides, for further questions about Azure App services, you can also post on following forum.


    With Regards,
