Auto discover shows IIS_Total and other sensors but IIS is not installed



I know I can delete the sensors but why does PRTG detect App Pool_Total and IIS_Total if I uninstalled IIS from Windows Server 2012 R2?

I would like to uninstall whatever it is needed from my server because I do not use IIS on that server.

Thank you

Hi Bully,

do you use the "PerfCounter IIS Application Pool Sensor"? This Sensor uses Windows performance counter. As long as these are response to query, the Sensor will work.
