Edit Web Site Limits Dialog Box

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use the Edit Web Site Limits dialog box to configure performance settings for your Web site based on bandwidth usage and connection limits. For example, by restricting either bandwidth or the number of connections, or both, on a low-priority Web site, you enable other, higher-priority sites to handle larger traffic loads. You can adjust these settings as network traffic and usage changes.

UI Element List

 

Element Name Description

Limit bandwidth usage (in bytes)

Select this option to limit the amount of traffic allowed to a Web site based on bandwidth usage. In the corresponding box, enter a value (in bytes) at which you want to limit the Web site traffic. The value must be an integer between 1024 and 4294967295 (unlimited).

Connection time-out (in seconds)

Type a number in the box to set the length of time (in seconds) before the Web server disconnects an inactive user. This setting guarantees that all connections are closed if the HTTP protocol cannot close a connection.

Limit number of connections

Select this option to limit the number of connections allowed to a Web site. In the corresponding box, enter the number of connections to which you want to limit the Web site. The value must be an integer between 0 and 4294967295 (unlimited). Setting the number to be unlimited circumvents constant administration if your connections tend to fluctuate. However, system performance can be negatively affected if the number of connections exceeds your system resources. Restricting a Web site to a specified number of connections can keep performance stable.
