Is it possible to monitor each application pool in IIS? I currently just use the IIS template but we have a need to monitor the application pool itself for the status of it. Is there a monitor for that or any ideas on how this can be accomplished?
i did set something up based on a post i found on here before appinsight and I know alter will find it quicker then I will but let me go looking l - but i monitored the work process for each app pool on the server i wanted to keep an eye on ... App insight for IIS is far better but it might help you in a pinch
Yes, it's possible to monitor the IIS application pools but there is no out-of-the-box application templates for this because they're specific to each named instance.You will need to create your own application template using the "Find Processes, Services, and Performance Counters" under SAM Settings which will list the instance names and the counters that are available to be monitored.
I was querying Win2k3 boxes. Apparently, those counters are not visible under earlier versions of IIS. I queried my SW frontend (running on 2k8 R2) and got the APP_POOL_WAS options, but they are not accessible on the 2k3 targets.
I cant seem to find APP_POOL_WAS server is a windows 2008 and running SAM 6.1
I believe I am following the steps correctly - customer perfmon monitor -- pick server iP and account info - but the above is not in the pull down ..
Component Type: WMI Monitor
WMI Namespace: root\CIMV2
SELECT CurrentApplicationPoolState FROM Win32_PerfFormattedData_APPPOOLCountersProvider_APPPOOLWAS WHERE Name='Name Application Pool via IIS console'
Critical: equal to 5 (Pool Down)
