In this weeks video Scott talks about web gardens.

IIS’s Web Gardens are a highly misunderstood feature in IIS ever since they were first introduced in IIS 6.0. This week’s lesson discusses why it’s rarely worth using Web Gardens and why using them is often detrimental to your server’s performance. This lesson is a type of anti-pattern on what to avoid, while also covering good theory and pointers to better practices that can be used instead.
