How do I restart the IIS application pools from command line, like I can do from IIS Manager, without restarting IIS itself with iisreset and having to wait up to a minute for it to come back online?

You can use the recycle command as mentioned in Recycle an Application Pool on Demand (IIS 7) or use combination of Stop/Start mentioned at Start or Stop an Application Pool (IIS 7). Both have separate sections for command line.
