Gets or sets a value that specifies the maximum number of sessions a ServiceHost object can accept at one time.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
The property specifies the maximum number of channels a ServiceHost can accept. Each listener object can have one pending channel that does not count against the value of until WCF accepts the channel and begins processing messages on it. This property is most useful in scenarios that make use of sessions.
A trace is written every time the value of this property is exceeded. The first trace is written as a warning.
For more information about sessions, see Using Sessions.
Typically, this property is set using the ServiceThrottlingBehavior.MaxConcurrentSessions property.
The following code example shows the typical use of the ServiceThrottle by referencing the ServiceThrottlingBehavior in an application configuration file. In this case, the values that are specified establish, at most, one message processing at one time from one connection to one InstanceContext. Real-world usage must be determined through experience.
<configuration> <appSettings> <!-- use appSetting to configure base address provided by host --> <add key="baseAddress" value="http://localhost:8080/ServiceMetadata" /> </appSettings> <system.serviceModel> <services> <service name="Microsoft.WCF.Documentation.SampleService" behaviorConfiguration="Throttled" > <host> <baseAddresses> <add baseAddress="http://localhost:8080/SampleService"/> </baseAddresses> </host> <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="Microsoft.WCF.Documentation.ISampleService" /> <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" /> </service> </services> <behaviors> <serviceBehaviors> <behavior name="Throttled"> <serviceThrottling maxConcurrentCalls="1" maxConcurrentSessions="1" maxConcurrentInstances="1" /> <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpGetUrl="" /> </behavior> </serviceBehaviors> </behaviors> </system.serviceModel> </configuration>
