How do we configure "WebGarden"?
The process model configured the "Web garden" settings in the "machine.config" or in the "Web.config" file. The configuration section is named as and is shown below in the following example. This process model is enabled by default (enable="true").
Below is the snippet from config file.
enable="true" timeout="infinite" idleTimeout="infinite" shutdownTimeout="0:00:05" requestLimit="infinite" requestQueueLimit="5000" memoryLimit="80" webGarden="false" cpuMask="12"
userName="" password="" logLevel="errors"
The processmodel section above for the web garden, we are concerned with only two attributes namely "webgarden" and "cpuMask".
WebGarden :- The webgarden Controls the CPU affinity. The True indicates that the processes should be affinitized to the corresponding CPU. Therefore the default is False.
cpuMask:- This Specifies which of the processors on a multiprocessor server are eligible to run the ASP.NET processes. The cpuMask value specifies a bit pattern that indicates the CPU is eligible to run the ASP.NET threads. The ASP.NET launches one worker process for every eligible CPU. If the webGarden is set to false, the cpuMask is ignored and only one worker of the process will run regardless of the number of processors in the machine. If the webGarden is set to true, the ASP.NET launches one worker process for every CPU that corresponds to a set bit in the cpuMask. The default value of cpuMask is always 0xffffffff.
The main steps of how to implement web garden are as follows:
- At first click the Start button and then click Run.
- Now Type calc.exe and then click OK.
- After that go to the View menu, & click the Scientific.
- Then Go to the View menu, & click the Binary.
- Then Use 0 and 1 to specify the processors ASP.NET can or cannot be use.
Now Use 1 for the processor that you want to use for the ASP.NET. And Use 0 for the processor that you do not want to use for the ASP.NET. For e.g., if you want to use the first 2 processors for the ASP.NET of a 4-processor computer, type 1100.
1)On the View menu, click the Decimal. Note the decimal number and keep in mind.
2)Open the Web.config or machine.config file in a text editor like Notepad. The Web.config file is located in a folder where the application is saved.
3)In the Web.config file, add the processModel configuration element under the System.web element. Now Before adding to Web.config file, the user has to make sure that the allow Definition attribute in the section of the Web.config file is fixed to everywhere.
4)Add and set the webGarden attribute of the processModel element to True.
5)Add and set the cpuMask attribute of the processModel element to the result that is determined in your calculation.
