In this episode you will learn more about the run-time information on all running page requests.

IIS 7.0 and 7.5 has a powerful hidden gem that many people don’t notice because it’s hidden deeper in the system. Full run-time information on all currently running page requests is easily available. This week’s video shows how to find this information through IIS Manager and using AppCmd.

Prior versions of IIS were like a black box when it comes to troubleshooting run-time situations. You often needed to use the IIS logs or an expensive profiling application. That’s no longer the case with IIS 7/7.5 because RSCA (Run-time control and API) information is now available, giving insight into what is running at this very moment.

If you ever run into performance issues on your server and need to track down the long running pages, this feature is for you.
