customized sensor for IIS SITE




for a while im already searching al over your site , im looking for a sensor so i can monitor my SITE(s) in IIS if i put it on stop or if its down for some reason.

Do you guys already support this or totally not? And if not, do you have any other suggestion how i can monitor this? My circle would be completed with this kind of sensor.

at the moment there is only the IIS Application Sensor which is capable of monitoring IIS Sites but the sensor does not recognize whether the Site is stopped or not. You might use the mentioned sensor in addition to a HTTP Sensor which simply checks if your site is available.
Additionally I forwarded this to the responsible developer to have him a look at the IIS Sensor whether a status of the site can be obtained.
Best regards
