Question about WMI IIS Application sensor



Hi I have a question about WMI IIS Application sensor. It gathers a lot of data - for example "Bytes Received", "Get Requests", etc. Let's assume I set scanning interval for this sensor to 5 minutes. My question is: what value exactly represents data displayed by this sensor? For example "Get Request (volume)" shows 10 000. Does it mean there was 10000 requests during last 5 minutes? Or "Bytes Received (speed)" - is it indeed amount of Bytes Received during last 5 minutes divided by 300 seconds? Please confirm it, it's important to understand results which the sensor gives.

Best Regards Martin

Speed values are always per second, so divided by the time between the scan just now and the previous scan. Other values with no notion of being speed - values, are 'volume'-values and so mean the full number of requests for example since the last scan.
