The Web Transactions Layer

One of the unique capabilities of the eG Enterprise is its ability to monitor individual web transactions.

To monitor web site transactions to an IIS web server executing on Windows 2003, you need to do the following:

  • Enable 'logging' on the target IIS web server;
  • Modify the eG agent configuration to support web transaction monitoring

Both these procedures have been detailed in the eG Installation Guide.

To monitor web site transactions to the IIS web server executing on Windows 2008 (or above), you need to install and configure Advanced Logging on the target IIS web server, soon after configuring a Web Server role on the server. This procedure has also been detailed in the eG Installation Guide.
