IIS Integration

Last updated on September 7th, 2021.

What's an integration?

This integration is powered by Elastic Agent. Elastic Agent is a single, unified agent that you can deploy to hosts or containers to collect data and send it to the Elastic Stack. Behind the scenes, Elastic Agent runs the Beats shippers or Elastic Endpoint required for your configuration. Please refer to our documentation for a detailed comparison between Beats and Elastic Agent.

Prefer to use Beats for this use case? See Filebeat modules for logs or Metricbeat modules for metrics.

Overview

IIS (Internet Information Services) is a secure, reliable, and scalable Web server that provides an easy to manage platform for developing and hosting Web applications and services.

The iis package will periodically retrieve IIS related metrics using performance counters such as:

  • System/Process counters like the the overall server and CPU usage for the IIS Worker Process and memory (currently used and available memory for the IIS Worker Process).
  • IIS performance counters like Web Service: Bytes Received/Sec, Web Service: Bytes Sent/Sec, etc, which are helpful to track to identify potential spikes in traffic.
  • Web Service Cache counters in order to monitor user mode cache and output cache.

and also parses access and error logs generated by IIS.

The iis integration datasets are:

Metrics

webserver

The webserver dataset allows users to retrieve aggregated metrics for the entire webserver.

An example event for webserver looks as following:
