ASP Max Threads RRS feed

  • User768126335 posted
    I've got an ASP application that occassionally hoses for some reason. I've noticed it hoses a lot faster running on IIS 6. I've got a hunch that it might have to do with all of the available threads being used to service slow requests. I know in ASP.NET you can configure the number of threads available to help alleviate problems like this. Is there a similar configurable setting for ASP (in IIS 5 or 6)?

    Yes, the metabase key - AspProcessorThreadMax IIS 5.0 - 25 IIS 6.0 - 10 per CPU. You can use ADSI to configure it.

    Thanks, Bernard. Do I need to apply the setting to the particular application (vdir) or to the whole web? My app runs in its own app domain on IIS 6.

    Yes, you can apply it at any level, if sub-level was not configure, it will inherit from the parent, refer http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windowsserv/2003/datacenter/proddocs/en-us/ref_mb_aspprocessorthreadmax.asp Next, it appears that there's an error in the document. where it said default value is '10'. It should be 25 same as IIS 5.0.

    Looks right, Bernard. When i look at the metabase, it is 25. I guess I'll up it to like 50 and try that. Thanks again for your help.
