Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public int ConnectionLimit { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of connections allowed on this ServicePoint object.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The connection limit is equal to or less than 0.

The ConnectionLimit property sets the maximum number of connections that the ServicePoint object can make to an Internet resource. The value of the ConnectionLimit property is set to the value of the ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit property when the ServicePoint object is created; subsequent changes to DefaultConnectionLimit have no effect on existing ServicePoint objects.

The following code example uses the ConnectionLimit property to check the maximum number of connections that the ServicePoint object can make to the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).

            Console.WriteLine ("ConnectionName = " + sp.ConnectionName);

            // Display the maximum number of connections allowed on this  
            // ServicePoint instance.
            Console.WriteLine ("ConnectionLimit = " + sp.ConnectionLimit);

            // Display the number of connections associated with this  
            // ServicePoint instance.
            Console.WriteLine ("CurrentConnections = " + sp.CurrentConnections);
