.NET Framework 2.0 Tuning configurations

Hello all,

For everyone wanting to tune the .NET Framework 2.0 configurations, they should take a look at the machine.config documentation directly from Microsoft, available at:


This site provides information on the parameters that can be configured, like MaxRequestLength, executionTimeout, minFreeThreads and minLocalRequestFreeThreads .

Take a special look at the <processModel> element configuration, namely the option autoConfig="true" (which is set by default upon installation of the .NET 2.0 Framework). It defines values for some of the parameters mentioned above according to the best practices defined by Microsoft, and keeping it set to true will override other configurations.
