Support for more App Pools for Service Applications?

Topics: Feature Requests

I was curious if there is any thought to adding support for more App Pools to allow for scaling the various service applications differently (as well as allowing for different security settings for different service applications).

Microsoft itself is leaning towards fewer app pools these days, rather than more - for performance & memory management reasons mostly. I concur, so am not planning to provide support for adding more. The current config should allow decent security isolation (i.e. services running under non-privileged "SP Services" account vs. those running as the "SP Farm" account, plus web app accounts).
