Performance Counter - Requests/Sec spike to 4295208557!!

Occasionally I notice when viewing performance monitor with the counter Requests/Sec I get a very large spike. All is going on nicely with Requests/Sec averaging 6 - 11 then suddnbly it will jump up to 4295208557  Is there any way to view exactly what is handling? Some kind of log so that I know what is going on?

Thanks for any help

Monitoring the Event Log
It is critical to monitor the event log for messages from ASP.NET and Microsoft® Internet Information Server (IIS). ASP.NET writes messages to the application log, for example, each time the aspnet_wp worker process terminates. IIS 6.0 writes messages to both the application and/or system logs, for example, each time the w3wp worker process reports itself unhealthy or crashes. It is quite easy to write a .NET application that reads the application log and filters out messages from ASP.NET and IIS, and fires an alert (sends e-mail or dials a pager) if necessary.
