WebMessageEncodingBindingElement.MaxWritePoolSize Property

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

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

public int MaxWritePoolSize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of writers available to process outgoing messages. The default is 16 writers 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 outgoing messages because it is able to use writers from the pool that are already created instead of creating new ones.
