Windows Server Tuning for .NET Application Pool

By default the IIS application pool is set to recycle at an arbitrary time offset from the time the server is started. This generally does not have a detrimental affect on FileHold, but it is a good practice to set the recycle time to a low usage time for FileHold. Recycling clears global variables and will force users to reconnect to FileHold. In versions 14 and higher this reconnection is automatic.

The following steps are provided for Windows server 2008. They are similar for newer versions of Windows.

  1. Start the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  2. Open up the Application Pools section.
  3. Right click on FHAppPool and select Recycling from the context menu.
  4. Uncheck Fixed Intervals > Regular time intervals (default is every 24 hours, based on when the IIS based application was originally installed)
  5. Check specific time(s) and set a time for the middle of the night when FileHold users are not normally using the system.
  6. Click Next
  7. Click Finish.
