Hi all, I need to know where I can find the IIS 6 logs... not about the individual web site or application but for the IIS it self... I need to find why an iis 6 sometimes hangs and stops every site on it :P

I hope this http://forums.iis.net/p/1178308/1982561.aspx#1982561 Thread
for "Deciphering IIS 6.0 logs" helps.
I am not running Windows 2003 and IIS 6.0.
The Log Parser runs on IIS 6.0 and IIS 7.5 for Windows 7 Pro.
I dislike the Raw Logs and like the Charts gotten Lazy :)
If you need samples for Log Parser check the IIS Net Log Parser Forums

thanks for the response.... although the issue is related with the IIS it self... and I even could find where the iis 6 is logging his internal operations, to find some useful info that could be related with the hangs..

Logs are IIS Server related to IIS requests and logs.

Tess has Crash hang memory problems etc.

ok, so if IIS has issues related with his crash r hangs they are provided by the applications logs... ? right? so what I can expect to find in those logs that can cause a hang on iis? hum it looks that it'll be a long story...
Crash dump in not the case... the server stills running and in the event viewer we don't see anything related with the IIS worker process on other related. The only thing is that iis don't response because every single site is stopped...

The Short or Long story is in the Status Codes http://www.iisworkstation.com/2008/06/troubleshooting-iis-6-status-and.html List descriptions errors.
You will not see see information in Windows Event view for normal operations.
If you need to do monitoring IIS process get and install System internals Process Monitor

The http.sys log and event logs should have corresponding log entries for this kind of issues(e.g apppool crash). You can find more inforamtion about http.sys log in the following article:
