Hi...
Does anyone know of a piece of software that I can use to watch live traffic on my webserver?

Windows 2003 Server running IIS

I currently use DUMETER to watch the ammount of incoming/outgoing traffic...

But I would like something so I can watch the pages and files that people are accessing...

thanks!

That's a pretty boring and useless thing to do i'd say. ;)

Focus on generating reports that you can get emailed to you every day, to see the status of your site.

But if you really really really want to do it, download mTail or similar:

[ophilipp.free.fr...]

and run it against your IIS logs.

On *nix you can telnet or SSH into your server and use the following command:

tail -f /path/to/access_log

There may be a way to do a similar thing under windows. It also helps to disable logging of resource stuff like images and CSS.

crazyleg,

I can't recommend a commercial piece of software, but if you're literate in SQL, you might want to check out Q article Q245243 at support.microsoft.com ... this should get you started in the right direction.

crazyleg,

there is an asp project called "Metatraffic" which could be something interesting for you.

Just search for it in Google
