When you perform a background batch compile, the compile may cause the Aspnet_wp.exe process to deadlock if all the worker threads are used. When you set the process model to maxWorkerThreads = 20, and then when the number of running Aspnet_wp.exe threads also equals 20, all 20 worker threads wait for a ManualResetEvent to be signaled. A WaitCallback (BatchCompileDirectory) function that cannot run until there is a free thread signals the event. A free thread never occurs. Use all the threads in the thread pool, and then generate a situation that requires a batch compile to simulate this scenario.
You may see the following event logged in the Application log of the Event Viewer:
Event ID: 1003:
When a background batch compile causes the deadlock, the worker threads return the following stack trace:
