IIS’s Web Gardens are a highly misunderstood feature in IIS ever since they were first introduced in IIS 6.0. This week’s lesson discusses why it’s rarely worth using Web Gardens and why using them is often detrimental to your server’s performance. This lesson is a type of anti-pattern on what to avoid, while also covering good theory and pointers to better practices that can be used instead.
This is week 24 of a 52 week series for the Web Pro. This week’s topic is foundational in properly understanding the security sandbox boundaries in IIS. Past and future videos can be found here: http://dotnetslackers.com/projects/LearnIIS7/
