Gets or sets the lifetime of a channel, after which it is closed.


Gets or sets the maximum number of channels connecting to remote endpoints that can be initiated by the service.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

Quotas are used as a policy mechanism to prevent the consumption of excessive resources. They prevent Denial of Service (DOS) attacks that are either malicious or unintentional. Use this class when setting channel quotas on a custom channel.

ChannelPoolSettings specifies three quotas:

  • IdleTimeout to specify the maximum interval of time for which the channels in the pool can be idle before being closed.

  • LeaseTimeout to specify the interval of time after which a channel, when returned to the pool, is closed.

  • MaxOutboundChannelsPerEndpoint to specify the maximum number of channels that can be stored in the pool for each remote endpoint.
