Assigning Resources to Applications in IIS 6.0

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

There are several ways to assign, or limit, the amount of resources an application can use. You can use application property sheets to control performance, cache, and process options of individual applications, or you can use bandwidth throttling to limit resources for an entire site or application pool. A third alternative is to control access to your application through the NTFS file system and Web server security features.

ImportantImportant
You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /user:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".
