IIS 6.0 Enterprise Tracing for Windows
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
Windows Server 2003 includes Enterprise Tracing for Windows (ETW), a framework for implementing tracing providers that can be used for debugging and capacity planning. IIS 6.0 implements a number of providers to trace key transitions and the progress that an HTTP request makes as it moves through the IIS service framework. These providers include the following:
IIS: WWW Server. This provider traces the transition of a request from HTTP.sys through various IIS subcomponents.
IIS: SSL Filter. This provider traces calls into and out of the SSL Filter, which is used for SSL traffic.
IIS: ISAPI Extension. This provider traces the transition of a request into and out of Internet Server API (ISAPI) extension processing.
IIS: ASP. Traces the start and completion of the execution of an ASP request.
IIS: IIS Admin Tracing. Traces the IIS Admin service during startup and shutdown.
