Is it possible to monitor the current active connections on websites from IIS?



Hello, I am trying to find out if there is a way to monitor the current active connections for an specific website using a type of IIS sensor? The one sensor currently in place is "Windows IIS Application" but only shows the users, bytes sent and received, files sent and received, post requests, etc. I'am looking for a sensor that tells the actual number of active connections to the specific website in certain time.

Thanks in advance.

Vicky Barraza.

Please check this article here for that sensor. It needs to be a custom sensor and when building this, make sure if you want to monitor a site other than the total that you run the WMI query with the tester beforehand and see which number the site will be in the array. Then you can replace the array 0 callout in the script and monitor whichever website you'd like.
