The HttpRuntimeSection allows you to handle those parameters that affect the behavior of the ASP.NET runtime.

It refers to the node in the configuration file that is indicated by the httpRuntime Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema) tag and can be used at any level in the configuration hierarchy.

The HttpRuntimeSection section contains directives that manage the following:

  • Request execution timeouts.

  • Directives to thread scheduling at the application level.

  • Directives that govern application queue limits.

  • Request length.

When running more than one application in a single process, you should lock down this section so that applications cannot elevate their relative priority to one another.

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