ChannelPoolSettings.IdleTimeout Property

Get or sets the maximum interval of time for which the channels in the pool can be idle before being closed.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
public TimeSpan IdleTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan
The TimeSpan that specifies the maximum interval of time for which the channels in the pool can be idle before being closed. The default value is 2 minutes.
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The value is less than zero or greater than T:System.Int32.MaxValue in milliseconds.

The IdleTimeout quota is used to mitigate Denial of Service (DOS) attacks on the server that rely on tying up resources for an extended period of time. On the client, setting the correct value can increase the reliability of connecting with the service. The default value is based on a conservatively modest allocation of resources. It is suitable for a development environment and small installation scenarios. Service administrators should review the value if an installation is running out of resources or if connections are being limited despite the availability of additional resources.
