How to monitor web application throughput?

I am trying to monitor the throughput our Web Server has (which contains 3 web applications). I would like to be able to break down how much bandwidth is used by the different ports that are used for our http and https web applications.

Is that possible?

I was successful in settings up monitoring for all throughput going in and out of the NIC associated with the server but want more detail than that.

http-sensor iis ports throughput

Hi,
you might have a look at the Windows IIS Application sensor for this purpose. You can monitor all running websites in IIS and also various stats for them.
Best regards

This sensor mentions that the host (probe) should be running Windows 2008 R2. The machine I have the PRTG installlation on is a Windows 2003 SP2 server. Does that matter?

Hi,
the sensor is a hybrid sensor which has the capability to monitor either via WMI or via Performance Counters. Only for the Performance Counters option Win 2008 R2 is needed. If it is not present the sensor will automatically fall back to monitor via WMI.
So there should be no issues.
