Long running Clean Up task in Global.asax Application_End ()


Hi All,

I have an asp.net web application that needs to clean up some worker
threads on application shutdown. These threads are emptying an in
memory buffer of messages to disk.

Basically I want these threads to empty any remaining messages to disk
before exiting.

To do so, I'm calling a clean up method in Application_End ()

To test the cleanup methods, I stop IIS using CMD: "IISRESET /stop"

Most of the time this works fine, the threads complete cleanup in time.
However sometimes the cleanup task takes a while to complete. In this
case IIS seems to forcefully shutdown killing the worker threads before
they can finish emptying their buffers.
So in essence I have the following questions:

1.What is the timeout IIS allows for calls to me made in
Application_End () before it forcefully exits? and is there a way to
extend this timeout?

2.Is Application_Dis posed() a better place to be doing this kind of
cleanup work? And if so what is the difference in function to
Application_End ()?
Any help is greatly appreciated, I fear that if this application
becomes very busy, in memory data may be lost on shutdown.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Andrew Stone.

Hi, I'm having difficulty understanding how the Application_End event in the Global.asax file gets called. I thought that it's called when the specific web site is stopped via the IIS management console. Could anyone please tell me where I can dispose of objects when wanting to stop a specific web site without having to explicitly run IISRESET, as I have other web sites that I am not allowed to reset on the same machine and calling...

My .Net book states that the Application_End event handler in Global.asax gets called typically about 20 minutes after the last HTTP request. My question is: what is the best way to debug my Application_End code? I could of course add a button or something to a form to run the code explicitly, but I want to be sure it is really getting called after 20 minutes. I assume that if I put a breakpoint in my Application_End code, and then run the...

I'm pretty new to asp.net and am having problems with my application timing out. I've written an application that loops through all of the information on an excel spreadsheet and does certain things with it, like creating and configuring WSS sites. My application runs fine for approximately 25 minutes, then I get the 'Page cannot be displayed' error. It seems like my browser times out before the application can finish what its doing.
