What is the IIS7 default time for HTTP keepAlive?
The default connection timeout in IIS7 is 2 minutes. Click on your web site in IIS Mgr, click Advanced Settings, and expand Connection Limits. The Connection Timeout (Seconds) setting is what governs this. If IIS doesn't receive activity on a connection for this duration then it will time the connection out. This is regardless of whether or not the connection was requested as a keep-alive. You will, of course, have to have keep-alives enabled for this to be a "keep-alive timeout". Keep-alive is enabled by default in IIS.
You can also set it for the site in the applicationHost.config file using the
<limits> and the
<limits connectionTimeout="00:02:00" />
This will set the timeout value to 2 minutes.
HTTP KeepAlive is a true/false switch. If HTTP Keepalive is true, it will use the "Connection Timeout" setting (default 120 seconds)
Also you can use this option in your web.config
<system.web> <httpRuntime executionTimeout="180" /> </system.web>
+1. By the way, the link you have there is for .Net Framework 3 which doesn't actually support an int for that attribute. I think you meant this link: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/dotnet/…– ZoomzoomMar 15, 2019 at 15:00
