    Jun 19, 2012 03:05 PM|valf_47|LINK

    I am trying to find a way to view active sessions/connections to my web pages hosted on a Web Server 2008 running IIS7.  I have tried setting up a preformance counter but when I go to the web page, the counter never changes so I don't have something working correctly.  Any other ideas on how to find out who/what is connected to a web page?

     Thanks.

    Hi valf_47,

    In IIS 7+ in IIS Manager at the server level you can click on "Worker Processes". Then doubleclick the worker process to open the Requests feature page in where you can view the requests currently processing in the selected application pool.

    Where do you see the requests feature page? When I double click on Worker Processes, it opens up, then I click on Application pools but that's all I get to.

    It sounds like there may not be any requests to view currently.  If there is no CPU usage there would be no requests to view.  You can use F5 to refresh the page to see if there is any current CPU usage by the worker process.

    Is there any other way to find out if a user is connecting to the web pages? I know that one of our web pages is an online application and we receive applications all day every day.  I watched the queue for quite a while yesterday and did not see anything.

    Also to note, I had the requests page open, then I browsed to the web page myself and didn't see the request come in.
