Health Application Pool Settings

.NET Framework 1.1

Enable Pinging

Enable pinging is the equivalent application pool setting for the pingFrequency ASP.NET process model setting. It specifies the interval at which the ASP.NET ISAPI checks for the existence of the worker process. If the worker process is absent, the worker process is restarted. Enable pinging is enabled and set to 30 seconds by default. You can specify a different time interval by changing the value in the spin box. To disable pinging, clear the Enable pinging check box.

Shutdown Time Limit

Shutdown Time Limit is the equivalent application pool setting for the shutDownTimeout ASP.NET process model setting. It specifies the amount of time a worker process is given to shutdown gracefully. If the worker process does not shutdown in time amount specified, the ASP.NET ISAPI will end the worker process. Shutdown Time Limit is set to 90 seconds by default. You can specify a different time limit by changing the value in the spin box.
