MaxReadPoolSize Property

WebMessageEncodingBindingElement.MaxReadPoolSize Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies the maximum number of readers that is allocated to a pool and that is available to process incoming messages without allocating new readers.

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

public int MaxReadPoolSize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of readers available to process incoming messages. The default value is 64 readers of each type.


The value is less than or equal to zero.

Increasing this number increases memory consumption, but prepares the encoder to deal with sudden bursts of incoming messages because it is able to use readers from the pool that are already created instead of creating new ones.
