When this happens the WWW Publishing Service puts all applications in the application pool "out of service".

This property specifies the maximum number of failures allowed within the number of minutes specified by the "Time period" property, before the application pool is shut down by Rapid Fail Protection.

Time period

This property specifies the number of minutes before the failure count for a process is reset.
