Microsoft IIS

Metricly can monitor the performance of your IIS server(s) using our Windows agent. Our Windows agent is a Microsoft Windows service that collects, aggregates, and publishes windows performance counters and attributes. For more information on the Agent itself as well as any plugins available, see the Windows Agent page.


All editions of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2
The versions of Windows/Windows Server listed above have the required .NET Framework installed. In some cases, the required version of the .NET Framework may be installed but not enabled by default. Other older versions of Windows or Windows Server may work if you can install .NET Framework v. 3.5 or v. 4.5.
Microsoft .NET Framework v. 3.5 or v. 4.5


If you haven’t installed the Windows agent already, see the instructions on this page for how to install it. If you need to disable the Windows integration or view the unique API key assigned to your account, navigate to the Integrations page under the user account drop-down menu and click the integration designated as Windows under the Integration column.

Once you’ve installed the Windows agent, you’ll need to add additional custom metrics to begin viewing IIS Server performance data.

Additional Configuration Options

For information on all the additional configuration options available, see the Windows Agent page.


The IIS Server metrics are a small subset of the available Windows metrics.

In the following tables, the BASE column indicates whether there’s a baseline band available for the metric, the CORR column indicates whether there’s a contextual band available for the metric, and the UTIL column indicates whether the metric can be used as a utilization metric in the Utilization and Utilization Boxplot Reports.
