What is the purpose of IIS application pools?

 Posted by Lokesh76 on 3/28/2011 | Category: IIS Interview questions | Views: 8707 | Points: 40

We use applicaiton pools for isolation purpose. Every application within an application pool used the same worker process. Each worker process operates as a separate instance of the worker process executable, W3wp.exe, the worker process that services one application pool is separated from the worker process that services another.

In simplest words we use applicaiton pools for ISOLATION purpose.
