We have an applicaiton server that hosts backend services that are access from the customer facing website. Should we separate WCF services and asmx services into separate application pools? The site hosting the appliactions set up for the services will
be in it's own app pool. I would just like to know if there is any recommendation on this from the good folks at Microsoft.

Separated application pools can prevent the services from being affected by your site. If the web services are not only called by one site, then separated application
pools is recommended. This will keep the services alive when the site encounter a fatal error that causes its application pool crash.
If I misunderstood you, please let me know.
