IISState- troubleshooting IIS 6.0 issues And European English

If you have ever had process recycling issues under IIS 6.0, often your best bet is to use IISState to take some "dumps" and examine them. There is a whole newsgroup devoted to this issue.

There is also a newer version of IISState than that which ships with the IIS Resource kit, and you can find out about it on this excellent site here.

Another issue that goes hand-in-hand is the monitoring of IIS App Pool events. By default, extensive logging is turned off. However you can turn it on with:

csript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/AppPools/<AppPoolName>/<AppPoolEventToTurnOn> true

Here is a link to the KB article that describes all this in more detail:


On a lighter note, Milan Negovan has a funny piece he's quoted about the changing standards of European English for the EU.
