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

public int MaxRetryCycles { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of retry cycles to attempt delivery of messages to the application. The default value is 2.

A single retry cycle attempts to deliver a message to an application a specified number of times. The number of attempts made is set by the ReceiveRetryCount property. If the application fails to access the message after the specified number of immediate retries, the message is sent to a retry queue. Subsequent retry cycles consist of the message being returned from the retry queue to the application queue to attempt delivery to the application again, after a delay specified by the RetryCycleDelay property. The MaxRetryCycles property specifies the number of retry cycles that the application uses to attempt to deliver the message.
