A web server, IIS lets you share information with users on the Internet, intranet, or extranet and so monitoring of its performance, response time, etc., is critical to its users. Applications Manager helps you in being proactive in monitoring the IIS web server. It connects to the IIS server and checks for the availability, response time, website stats and status of the various web applications in the pool at regular intervals of time.
Your website is the primary face of communication with your customers and so real-time monitoring of your website is inevasible. Availability and the response time of a website during a user access are the two most critical metrics determining the user experience. Applications Manager's IIS monitoring capability effectively monitors the bytes and files transferred per second, connection statistics and the anonymous/ non-anonymous users per second in your website, besides availability, health and response time. These metrics will help one to know the current load on the server and its performance.
Application pool allows one to isolate the web applications deployed in IIS for better security, availability, performance and to keep it running without impacting others. Web sites and web applications depend on the availability of IIS application pools and so monitoring the pools is critical. Applications Manager will dnisplay the availability status (running, crashed, stopped, etc.,) and health of the various pools in the server and alert you of any failures.
Monitoring the critical transactions of a website reveals its performance from an end user perspective. Applications Manager lets you get the unique visibility into key performance metrics starting from CLR performance to URLs to SQL queries and measures user-satisfaction with Apdex Scores. With individual transactions being traced, troubleshooting code latencies and pinpointing the root cause of issues is simpler and faster.
Keep ahead of the server issues with detailed performance metrics to identify the heap size, threads, network traffic and connections to the .NET server.
You get round-the-clock monitoring with proactive alarm notifications and delivers comprehensive fault management checking for impending problems, triggering appropriate actions and gathering performance data for planning, analysis, and reporting.
