In this post, I’m trying to compare SharePoint 2016 Application Pool limits with SharePoint 2013 / 2010 / 2007.
It’s also recommended to read SharePoint 2019 Limitations.
SharePoint 2016 Application Pool Limits compared to SharePoint 2013
The following table lists the recommended guidelines for Application Pool in SharePoint 2016, SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint 2007.
|limits||SharePoint 2007||SharePoint 2010||SharePoint 2013||SharePoint 2016|
|Application Pool||8 per web Server||10 per web server||10 per web server||10 per web server|
This limit is dependent largely upon:
- The amount of memory allocated to the web servers
- The workload that the farm is serving, that is, the user base and the usage characteristics (a single highly active application pool can utilize 10 GB or more)
