Microsoft IIS web server monitor
The Microsoft IIS monitor shows the measurements and server properties that can be monitored on the Microsoft IIS web server during the test run.
Set up the Microsoft IIS monitor
This task describes how to set up the Microsoft IIS monitor.
If your monitor accesses a server outside of your internal network, you may need to set up a web proxy to collect data from it. For details, see Use a proxy server.
Select a resources folder.
Select a resources folder for the monitor profile in the resources tree, or create a new folder as follows:
In LoadRunner Enterprise, click Open the navigation toolbar and select Monitors (under Assets).
Click New Folder and enter a name for the monitor resources folder.
Create a monitor profile.
Click New Monitor Profile , and make sure Monitor Profile is selected.
Enter a name and optional description for the monitor profile, and click Save. An empty monitor profile is added to the selected resources folder.
Select the monitor profile you just added and click Add Monitor .
In the Monitor Type Selection tab, select the MS IIS monitor type and click Next.
In the Monitor Definition tab, enter the server details:
Click Get Counters to display a list of available metrics and counters.
Select the measurements that you want to monitor, and then click to add the counters to the Selected Counters table.
The following table describes the measurements and server properties that can be monitored on the Microsoft IIS web server during the test run:
The rate at which the data bytes are sent by the Web service.
The rate at which the data bytes are received by the Web service.
The rate at which HTTP requests using the GET method are made. Get requests are generally used for basic file retrievals or image maps, though they can be used with forms.
The rate at which HTTP requests using the POST method are made. Post requests are generally used for forms or gateway requests.
The maximum number of simultaneous connections established with the Web service.
The current number of connections established with the Web service.
Current NonAnonymous Users
The number of users that currently have a non-anonymous connection using the Web service.
Not Found Errors/sec
The rate of errors due to requests that could not be satisfied by the server because the requested document could not be found. These are generally reported to the client as an HTTP 404 error code.
The current number of bytes that the process has allocated that cannot be shared with other processes.
Click Save. The monitor details are displayed in the Monitors tab for the selected monitor profile.
Associate the monitor with your test.
For details, see Step 3: Associate monitors with your test.

If you encounter a "Failed to retrieve measurements" error when trying to get monitor counters or run a test, see Monitor fails to retrieve measurements.
