netstat type sensor to monitor number and frequency of..



I want to be able to monitor the number of http connections at any given time and be able to see that over minutes/days/weeks. I want to be able to correlate the number of user logins/accesses to a particular website and the CPU usage. I have the CPU Load sensor running, I just need something that will run against a windows 2003 box that would be similar to netstat -an | grep :80

and have that execute every minute or so.

If one does not exist, how would I go about creating one?

http monitoring netstat web-page-hits

you could check if there is a WMI Class to get that information and then use a WMI Custom (WQL) - Sensor or use a script as Custom EXE - Sensor directly. The final step would then be the calculation of the values into one with the Sensor Factory.

best regards.
