Is there a way to determine IIS traffic on a 2003 server

I need to be able to tell if anyone is accessing the sites on a few IIS servers. These are in our DMZ so I cannot using any 3rd party app. Anyway by using the built in log files?

IIS keeps logs for websites by default.  You can find them in %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles.

If you need more information, please give us some idea of your skill level and exactly what you're looking for.

I have the logs already, Just need to know how can I determine if the sites are being access by anyone? Trying to determine if there is any real traffic going to the sites.

thanks

The logs record all the traffic... are you having trouble reading them or understanding them?

Look at the user agent.  Some are bots, but others will be fairly clear - mozilla, IE, etc.  If you have user agent hits from addresses outside of your network, then the site is being visited by others and not just bots.
