TcpConnectionPoolSettings.LeaseTimeout Property

Gets or sets the time span after which a connection in the connection pool is closed.

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

public TimeSpan LeaseTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan
Returns a TimeSpan structure that indicates the time span after which a cached TCP connection is purged from the connection pool.


The value cannot be less than zero.

This property bounds the overall lifetime of a socket. Once a socket has been around longer than LeaseTimeout, it is closed as soon as it is returned to the connection pool. The connection cache used by the TCP transport creates new connections as required for each endpoint up to the cache limit that is set by MaxOutboundConnectionsPerEndpoint.
