I am building a multi tenancy site in It will has three host headers.

My understanding is that when a request comes to, ISS will spin up a worker process for the for the application.

But what happens with a requests comes in for site, will it be the same worker process or will a new one start?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

In IIS default Maximum worker process for an Application Pool is 1. So in that case it will work on the same worker process.

But for you knowledge please have a look at this post ASP.NET Web Garden - How Many Worker Processes Do I Need?
