- Are you web developer building high traffic web site?
- Are you performance engineer that lives and breaths performance reports?
- Are you production System Engineer supporting heavy traffic web site?
In either case you need an ad-hoc simple-to-use tool to analyze your web site behavior under load during development, testing, and maintenance phases.
I thought it would be useful to focus on performance analysis tools that analyze IIS logs.
"Built-in report visualization with charting support for log files data. Full range selection and custom chart creation is supported, as well as the ability to print or save reports. Like the database manager you can use this module remotely over HTTP/SSL - which means it works in remote shared hosting scenarios."
