Requests that run on I/O threads that consume 100 percent of the available CPU capacity cause the completions on the named pipes between the Inetinfo.exe process and the Aspnet_wp.exe process to be blocked. These completions remain blocked until CPU capacity is available. This behavior causes incoming requests to be blocked.
To avoid these issues, ALL
requests now run on Worker threads. This scenario frees the I/O threads to continue to process completions. Note
This scenario is a significant change in behavior. Because of this change, you may have to configure, test, and stress the following configuration settings:
- maxIOThreads in the <processModel> section
- maxWorkerThreads in the <processModel> section
- minFreeThreads in the <httpRuntime> section
