Parent Elements

Element Description
<behavior> Specifies an endpoint behavior.

Remarks

Use this behavior to instruct the channel listener to use a synchronous receive rather than the default, asynchronous. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) issues a new thread to pump for each accepted channel. If there are a lot of channels, there is the possibility of running out of threads.
