IIS Agent

The IIS Agent monitors Microsoft Internet Information Services webservers. Depending on which agent platform you use, its architecture and functionality may differ. Find the detailed information below.

See Configure IIS Agent to learn how to configure the Agent.

Architecture

The IIS consists only of a IIS Agent Server Module that is loaded by the web server. It collects data of all worker processes. It gathers the information that is used for analysis on the AppMon Server. The AppMon Agent is responsible for handling communication with the Collector.
