What are the recommended settings for IIS application pool?
There are no general recommendations as it directly depends on server configuration. However, you can limit a number of CPU resources that the IIS application pool can use.
For that, please clear the Unlimited check box at Domains > example.com > Dedicated IIS Application Pool for Website and provide a number (in percents) in the Maximum CPU use (%) field, select the action that IIS performs when a worker process exceeds the configured maximum CPU usage, and specify the reset period for monitoring of CPU usage on an application pool at Limit interval (minutes) option.
