Instant Connection& Bandwith List for IIS

Hi;
for last few days, our win 2003 IIS server is facing high bandwith usage.We are unable to find the root cause of it.I would like know if there is any software which lets us track the connections with the following information.
1)From Ip
2)To IP & Port (IIS URL if availabe)
3)Instant Bandwith usage for the connection

Netstat -AN gives all the connections but does not display the band usage, so it becomes a meaningless list of connections.

Hi,

SmarterStats is freely available for one domain. You can use this.

Hi tanujchandna;
thx for your reply, it looks like smarterstats is a log analyzer in stead of a real time bandwith / connection tool like netstat -an. Plus we have 600 domains on server, even the smarterstats may be giving what we want, it's 900 USD that we can't effort for such information.

I am surprised as a hosting provider that has gained 600 sites you do not have a solution in place.

Anyway the main way is to look at the logs rather than real time. You will need a custom solution to get anything truely realtime. You will not be able to afford this based on your budget.

However with regular parsing of the log files you can emulate realtime.

You can use log parser the MS tool http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=890cd06b-abf8-4c25-91b2-f8d975cf8c07&displaylang=en to help you do this.

So you can write your own scripts based on this or have a look at this product

http://download.cnet.com/Bandwidth-Monitor-for-IIS/3000-2381_4-10145235.html

Which should do what you need.

Also for the most basic way of tell which site has most connection (not always size of bytes sent)

Also parse all your logs into a database that way you can get get more historical information about all the sites you host.

I am afraid none of these solutions tell me which url or file is being accessed instantly with the bandwith information.
Any other recommendations?

Bandwidth manager can display domain name.
Currently don't have Netlimiter installed but I don't remember it have this option

Another one but the latest versions are dedicated to paranoiac people.

I prefer oldest versions : http://www.oldversion.com/Tiny-Personal-Firewall.html

Hi Leakim;
bandwith manager displays the default domain name (hostname of the server) sadly.Am I wrong? I downloaded it all the connections were displayed as hostname:port as local address.Is there a setting which will show the real domain in IIS?

leakim971PluritechnicianCommented:
Both :
Local Domain Name - The domain name of the connection's local endpoint.
Remote Domain Name - The domain name of the connection's remote endpoint.

See attachment (I'm downloading SP3 for Office 2003)

Hi Leakim;
in your screenshot all the local addresses are your servers hostname.I want the software to display the accessed web site in IIS, not the hostname of the server.Is there such setting in this software?

the local address cds102.ams9.msecn.net you see its not my domain address but the distant one. A download site service used by Microsoft.

I remove my enterprise version and install Traffic Shaper, no difference about resolving domain name.
