AgentAsyncContext class

The AgentAsyncContext class represents an asynchronous state object that is used by asynchronous transport agents.


Namespace:  Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Transport
Assembly:  Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Transport (in Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Transport.dll)

public class AgentAsyncContext

Thread starvation can occur if the code that is executing asynchronously takes a long time to finish. Therefore, it is important to monitor the thread pool and reuse threads that are allocated to instances of your agent.

Caution noteCaution

If thread starvation occurs because of an asynchronous agent, the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service may stop responding to incoming connection attempts.

You should log an error to the event log if thread starvation occurs. Logging the error to the event log enables administrators and applications that monitor the event log to find and take action on the thread starvation.

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