Monitoring ASP Server Performance

On UNIX and Linux systems, the Server Monitoring page of the Sun Chili!Soft ASP Administration Console displays real-time information about ASP Server performance.


This feature is not available with Sun Chili!Soft ASP for Windows. On Windows systems, performance monitoring information is available via the Windows NT or Windows 2000 Performance Monitor. See your Microsoft documentation for more information.

If you have disabled performance monitoring, as described in "Disabling Performance Monitoring" in this chapter, you cannot view this server performance information. Disabling server performance monitoring is a recommended security precaution if you are running Sun Chili!Soft ASP in a shared Web hosting environment.

To view real-time information about the ASP Server

1.   Open the Administration Console by using the following URL:


where [HOSTNAME] is the hostname of your Web server and [PORT] is the port on which the Administration Console is running (5100 by default).

The Server Management page displays.

2.   In the left navigation pane, click monitor a server.


The Server Monitoring page displays.


3.   To continuously monitor the server, click live monitoring. This opens a separate window that displays constantly updated information.

The Server Monitoring page displays the following information:



Total requests

Total number of requests since the ASP Server was started

Requests per second

Number of requests per second being processed by the ASP Server

Total errors received

Number of ASP Server errors logged since the server was started
