Real time traffic analysis for IIS?

I am looking for real time traffic analyzer for IIS. A tool which can tell me which web sites are causing the most traffic in terms of number of requests or number of bytes.

There are times when my bandwidth is getting pretty saturated and I need to know what's causing it. I need another tool that's more IIS specific, beside using a network sniffer.

Use the performance monitor. Let it gather some metrics and see what the average load is. Severing the pages may not tax the hardware so monitor the network performance.

Ref this post and you will find may ways to monitor

I am looking for something more sophisticated than a log analyzer like WebTrends or Visistat. I have hundreds of web sites on the server, each one logging to a separate file.

ost of the analyzer either analyze the log file which is not real time or add a javascript which is not feasible because I don't own the site.

I need something that bolts to IIS like an ISAPI filter or monitors the network card intelligently.


I am aware of Wireshark which everyone recommends. Does it have the capability for queries?

Perhaps, something like this?  http://webscripts.softpedia.com/script/Web-Traffic-Analysis/IIS-Tracer-31085.html

never used it before, but looks like it might give you what you're looking for.

I have find CommView which can automatically save to a file which can be imported into a database for querying later.

I couldn't get Wireshark to do what I wanted. The exported file can't be imported into a database because each record has labels and more information than what's displayed on the screen,
