MaxBandwidth Metabase Property

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The MaxBandwidth property specifies the maximum network bandwidth used for IIS. You can use this setting to help prevent overloading the network with IIS activity. This is not an inheritable property, but the value set at the machine level is globally available to all server instances. MaxBandWidth can be set individually, so that specific server instances are used instead of the global value, and can exceed the global setting established at the machine level.

The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW service) must be restarted before changes to this property take effect.

The metabase represents unlimited as the DWORD value of 4294967295 (0xFFFFFFFF); however, VBScript represents unlimited in hexadecimal format as &HFFFFFFFF. Previous versions of IIS represented unlimited as -1.
