The MinInstances property represents the number of server object instances that are pre-loaded when the server object configuration is started. The GIS server will ensure that the minimum number of instances are always running within the server for a given configuration.

When there are more simultaneous requests that server object instances running, additional server object instances will be started until MaxInstances is reach.

The MinInstances property must be less than the MaxInstances property.
