IIS Service

The IIS service monitors the availability and performance of the Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), which is a group of server applications that are compatible with the Windows NT and Windows 2000 Server operating systems. The IIS sets up and administers Web sites and search engines, and supports the writing of Web-based applications that access databases. 

During the monitoring process, the IIS service uses the Windows probe to measure the IIS server's key metrics. The Windows Services dashboard displays the results.
