Comprehensive interesting article about going asynchronous with ASP.NET Web Forms from Jeff Prosise.

oldie but goodie

+1. I posted this a while back, but I still refer to it from time to time. Definitely worth the read.

This is of little use. The threads that are used for the asynchronous process are from the same thread pool as the running ASP.NET application. So you actually end up using more threads from the very pool you're trying to use less of.

So, unless you need fire-and-forget functionality, don't bother.
