ConnectionOrientedTransportBindingElement.MaxPendingAccepts Property

Gets or sets the maximum number of channels a service can have waiting on a listener for processing incoming connections to the service.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public int MaxPendingAccepts { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of channels a service can have waiting on a listener. The default value is 2 * number of processors.


The value is less than or equal to zero.

This property limits the number of channels that the server can have waiting on a listener. When MaxPendingAccepts is too low, there will be a small interval of time in which all of the waiting channels have started servicing connections, but no new channels have begun listening. A connection can arrive during this interval and will fail because nothing is waiting for it on the server. This property can be configured by setting the MaxPendingConnections property to a larger number.
