I successfully configured application intialization on IIS 8.5 and
it works (use url "/startup/appinit")
But I cannot find this URL in IIS logs that are per server and include all requests for all sites on the Web Server.
Does the IIS trigger app init URL without using the HTTP.SYS driver that prevents url to be tracked in IIS logs or this is lack of the app initialialization configuration?
I looked through the articles
but not found any information regarding disabled logging of application initalization page.
Found the article
When you set preloadEnabled to true, IIS will simulate a user request to the default page (can be changed with initializationPagemetabase setting) of the website/virdir so that the application initializes.
The request is not logged in the IIS logs.
But you can trace this with FREB. Every time you restart your application pool you will see a FREB trace file for the dummy request. You can identify this request by analysing the GENERAL_REQUEST_HEADERS and looking at the User-Agent string.
