Does the ServicePointManager DefaultConnectionLimit affect multi-user API handling?

Recenty I have been wondering if the System.Net.ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit setting is affecting scaling performance; however, I have a hard time testing this to know deterministically.

Initially I was thinking that it was only related to outbound http requests, but I wonder if since I am self-hosting a webapp and API, if response time might be limited by this. (say hundreds of concurrent users)

Any thoughts on how to know for sure if this setting is having an impact?

Don’t know how you’d go about testing this, best to ask non-ServiceStack questions on StackOverflow where there’s more eyes that can help.

The ServicePointManager should only impact “requests a connection to an Internet resource Uniform Resource Identifier”.
