Get a count on how many requests hitting the server

I need to know how many requests are hitting my server per month. What counter do I use? And is it possible to do with perfmon or WSRM? How do I set up such counter?

My server is Windows 2003 server enterprise edition

existing tool=IIS logging which i mentioned
mboppe mentioned a monitoring tool which uses the IIS logs to and makes graphs and other usefull information out of them.  

Perfmon will not give you the info you are looking for as far as i know.

check the IIS log perhaps?  If you dont have IIS logging turned on you turn it on in the IIS console.

there are many apps that will take the IIS log and parse it into more usable information by the way (graphs, stats etc)

I need some kind of a automation of this process. I need to get a monthly report for example about how many hits a server had. How is this possible? What are the apps that take IIS log and parse them into more usable information?

Thanks!

You can use the freeware which would give you all infomation about IIS.

Is it possible to do it without having to install any external softwares to the server? For example setting up some counter in perfmon? I just don't know which...

You need to write some sort of script to read the IIS logs files and get the result.

As far as i can tell the question has been answered but the question asker just didn't accept it.  It seems to be a common theme on EE lately where a question asker will ask a question, read the comments, use the valuable info we posted and just walk away from the question.  I would like to see this behavior stopped.

I didn't accept this because I didn't feel like my question was answered. Yes, I know I can write my own script to count the IIS logs entries. My question was, is there anything that I can utilize from EXISITING tools, such as perfmon to get the stats I need. thanks.

mboppe mentioned a freeware tool, meaning I would have to install it. To which I replied that I couldn't install any external tools at this point and was only looking to utilize whateve was available like perfmon.

I suppose that "Perfmon will not give you the info you are looking for as far as i know." answers my questions, so you can have the points. Thanks.
