IIS7 cpu limiting

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I've been looking at enabling the CPU Limit for a website. Under Advanced Settings for the appropriate Application Pool I set CPU Limit: 95000 Limit Action: NoAction Limit Interval: 5 After leaving this for a night, I checked the event logs to see how often that the worker process would have been recycled. To my horror it would have done so every few minutes, implying the server was maxed out for much of the night which is incorrect, logged total cpu usage never gets over 50%. Using Task manager, Resource Manager and PerfMon during the day and adjusting the above values, they all agreed (HowTos)
