SynchronousReceiveBehavior Class

Controls whether channels listen synchronously or asynchronously.

Namespace: System.ServiceModel.Description
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in system.servicemodel.dll)

public class SynchronousReceiveBehavior : IEndpointBehavior
public class SynchronousReceiveBehavior implements IEndpointBehavior
public class SynchronousReceiveBehavior implements IEndpointBehavior
Not applicable.

Use this behavior to instruct the channel listener to use a synchronous receive rather than the default, asynchronous. Using SynchronousReceiveBehavior instructs WCF to issue a new thread to pump for each accepted channel. If there are a lot of channels there is the possibility of running out of threads.

You can also set this value using the <synchronousReceive> element in an application configuration file.
