Web servers like Microsoft IIS servers are the heart of IT infrastructures in various domains - Healthcare, Banking, Trading, Logistics, etc. To ensure scalability and high performance, most web sites are being architected to use the multi-tier model - i.e., with the web server (IIS, Apache, etc.) functioning as the front-end, the middleware application server (J2EE, .Net based, etc.) that hosts the business logic functioning as the mid-tier, and a database server (SQL, Oracle, etc.) as the backend. In such architectures, the web server plays a pivotal role since all users to the other tiers are routed via the web server and hence, any slowdown or problem in the web server tier can adversely impact the end user experience.
eG Enterprise offers specialized monitoring models for the IIS web servers. The statistics reported by these models, enable administrators to quickly isolate problems in the .NET framework underlying the web servers, the server operating system, and application pools and web sites on the IIS web server. Using the eG .NET Business Transaction Monitor you can also monitor transactions to these web sites, evaluate transaction performance, trace the transaction path, and accurately diagnose the source of transaction slowness.
