    dedicated or shared application pool


    i want to host a few hundred sites on a server, but would like to know if i should use a dedicated application pool for each or a shared, what is the difference between the two?

    and also, whats the difference between scripts only and scripts and executables?

    It is not a good idea to use dedicated application pool for every web sites, Because every application pool consumes 8 MB of RAM. If you have 250 web sites, 250 x 8 MB = 2 GB of RAM is just required to manage your application pools.

    You can split the application pools into a few part. Maybe,you can put the web site that requires much CPU or RAM recourse in a dedicated pool in order no to effect the others.

    "scripts and executables" property allows the web sites to run cgi executables(.exe file).
