Free IIS Activity Monitor? (Real-time)

Hi there,

I'm looking for a free IIS activity monitor. We have a file hosting site and we want to see the downloads in real time and who is connected.

If there is a low-cost alternative, like in the $10-$35 range, that would be considered as well.

You won't find it.  The best you can do is monitor the IIS logs, however, that is post download.  Also, websites don't maintain connections for very long.  Basically the web browser requests a page, IIS loads it, runs any server side script then sends it back.  On a good quality server the whole transaction is only a few tenths of a second.

I did find something called the IIS activity monitor. While most web transactions take just seconds, file transfers do take a longer time.
