Deploying services as part of a large-scale enterprise system usually calls for features with conflicting goals. On one hand, you want to allow as many concurrent requests to process as possible, for throughput. On the other hand, you want to throttle requests, so that server resources are not exhausted. In this webcast, we explore the features Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides for managing concurrent access and throttling access to services. Learn how to configure services to allow reentrancy or concurrent threads to access a particular service instance, see how these settings relate to instancing modes, and discover how to protect services from concurrent access using WCF or class Microsoft .NET multithreading techniques. We also describe how WCF allocates threads to handle concurrent requests, explain how to throttle those requests, and provide guidance on typical settings based on instancing modes. We conclude this session with a discussion on load balancing and failover semantics in relation to WCF services, paying particular attention to the various types of sessions you can employ.
