AppDomain Unload does corrupt Thread Pool

Hi,I was just trying to run a simple scenario:1. Create AppDomain2. Use up all Worker threads from Thread Pool 3. Unload AppDomain before the worker threads have finished.4. Try to queue another WorkItem in your default or some other AppDomainResult: The .NET thread pool is dead because there are no threads left for the other AppDomain. ThreadPool Threads are not given back to the thread pool when an AppDomain.Unload is performed. I think it is ok to not kill the threads (reliability) but what is not ok is that there are no threads left for other AppDomains. An AppDomain unload should increase the number of worker/io completion port threads which are currently running inside the to be unloaded AppDomain to ensure that you do not run out of threads after 2-3 days of regular operation when some AppDomains where created and destroyed in the meantime.This will eat up your thread pool quite fast.Sample Code to reproduce:using System;using System.Collections.Generic;using System.Text;using System.Threading;using System.Diagnostics;namespace ThreadPoolAndAppDomain{    [Serializable]    public class Worker    {       public Worker()       {}       int nQueuedItems = 0;              public void QueueWorkItems(int n)       {           for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)           {               ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(delegate(object state)               {                   lock (this) 

Singleton Thread Pool



The thread pool that remoting infrastructure use to process simultaneous client's requests is the same thread pool of the host process?

If it is the same pool, threads i take to do normal work on the remote object decrease the throughput of the application beacause remoting infrastructure would have less threads to handle client's requests.


Thanks in advance.

.NET Matters: Aggregating Exceptions


Exceptions in .NET are the fundamental mechanism by which errors and other exceptional conditions are communicated. This month's column provides information about how to aggregate exceptions to help manage a variety of scenarios in which multiple exceptions might result from one operation, including scenarios involving parallelism and concurrency.
