Distributors govern the formatting and distribution of notifications. Each application must have at least one distributor. If an application has multiple distributors, each one must run on a different server.

You add individual distributors to an application by using the Add method on the Distributors property.

The following examples show how to add a distributor to an application:

// Define distributor for application
Distributor distributor = 
    new Distributor(myApplication, "Distributor");
distributor.SystemName = notificationServicesHost;
distributor.QuantumDuration = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 15);
distributor.ThreadPoolSize = 2;

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
