- You run a Microsoft .NET Framework 4-based Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service.
- The WCF service uses the Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service (Smsvchost.exe) and is hosted on a computer that is running Internet Information Services (IIS).
- One of the following conditions is true:
- The CPU usage is high on the computer that is running IIS.
- A throttle occurs in a service model for the WCF service.
- Multiple requests are sent to the WCF service at the same time.
Source: SMSvcHost 188.8.131.52
Event ID: 8
Task Category: Sharing Service
User: LOCAL SERVICE
Description: An error occurred while dispatching a duplicated socket: this handle is now leaked in the process.
System.TimeoutException: This request operation sent to did not receive a reply within the configured timeout (00:01:00). The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout. This may be because the service is still processing the operation or because the service was unable to send a reply message. Please consider increasing the operation timeout (by casting the channel/proxy to IContextChannel and setting the OperationTimeout property) and ensure that the service is able to connect to the client.Note You must restart IIS to recover the WCF service from this issue.
When the CPU has a heavy workload, or when many concurrent connection requests are incoming, the Smsvchost.exe process cannot transfer the incoming connection to the W3wp.exe worker process within one minute. Therefore, the Smsvchost.exe process times out and eventually stops responding. When this issue occurs, the Smsvchost.exe process cannot route later requests to the W3wp.exe worker process until IIS is restarted.
