I've read in various posts in the forum that the ideal setup for VP-ASP is in its own application pool. I have set up a VP-ASP 6.0 based site on a Virtual Private Server (VPS), so have been able to do this, but wondered if anyone had any recommendations for the settings that the application pool should have.

There are four tabs in the Application Pool properties dialog box: Recycling, Performance, Health and Identity. Any advice on what values to use on what settings to tick would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Mark Lloyd

I hope support responds on this. I would like to know what the exact settings need to be as well, so I could forward these to my ISP.

My Alentus.com host is expert on this, I have no problems. But, my other site/host are not as expert, and I still need to monitor my site daily and reset language at least once per day. Emailing them the exact settings would be very helpful (I hope).

Hi guys,

Generally, issues with customers experiencing timeouts and losing their sessions are due to one of the following -

1. Having your site running in a "Web garden" setup where your site is shared between multiple processes/servers

2. Being assigned to an application pool that has too many sites assigned to it causing each site to be intermittently recycled.

We recommend that you that you are assigned you to your own application pool that has recycling disabled and the recycler process set to recycle your site only once at a set time during the day.

Hope this helps

Thanks
Cam

So is the standard procedure for setting up multiple VPASP sites (4.x - 6.x) on IIS 6 to give each one its own application pool and then disable recycling on each pool except the manual recycle at some off hour time?

Regards!

Steve, are there any other considerations with IIS6 for performance or compatibility?

And this isn't a YES/NO question. ;)

We simply set different app pools on our server and then attached each site to a different pool with the recycling done as per supports suggestion.

That was it, after that we have never had any problems with performance or compatibility.

Hope this helps.
