This property specifies the number of minutes allowed for the worker process to shut itself down gracefully. When the timeout expires, ASP.NET shuts down the worker process forcibly.

The following code example shows how to use the ShutdownTimeout property.

                // Get the current ShutdownTimeout property value.
                TimeSpan shutDownTimeout =

                // Set the ShutdownTimeout property to
                // TimeSpan.Parse("00:00:30").
                processModelSection.ShutdownTimeout =
