Examples

The following code example shows the use of ServiceThrottlingBehavior from an application configuration file that sets the MaxConcurrentSessions, MaxConcurrentCalls, and MaxConcurrentInstances properties to 1 as an example. Real-world experience determines what the optimal settings are for any particular application.

<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>

Remarks

Use the ServiceThrottlingBehavior class to control various throughput settings that help prevent your application from running out of memory.

The MaxConcurrentCalls property limits the number of messages that currently process across a ServiceHost.

The MaxConcurrentInstances property limits the number of InstanceContext objects that execute at one time across a ServiceHost.

The MaxConcurrentSessions property limits the number of sessions a ServiceHost object can accept.

Because run-time load balancing requires experience running the application, using the ServiceThrottlingBehavior through an application configuration file is the most common method of modifying execution to maximize service performance.

Note

A trace is written every time the value of these properties is reached. The first trace is written as a warning.

You can also set the values of this attribute by using the <serviceThrottling> element in an application configuration file.
