This step-by-step article describes how you can restrict ASP.NET to use specific processors in a multiprocessor system. You can configure ASP.NET applications to use specified processors in a multiprocessor system. This is useful to control the overall performance effect that Web applications may have on a server. When you restrict multiple ASP.NET applications to certain processors on a single server, you limit the opportunity for an application to affect the performance of another application. This is particularly useful when the ASP.NET application executes on the same physical server as the SQL Server, and the SQL Server configuration specifies different processors.
Note In most cases, you can reach optimal performance if you allow all processes to use all processors. Processor usage for ASP.NET must be restricted only to limit the effect on other processes.
