PROFILE27 - Checking app pools are running
- Date: 9 Nov 2006
- Versions affected: ANTS Profiler 2.6+ in conjunction with Windows Server 2003
If an error occurs in the application being profiled by ANTS Profiler, the application pool process may stop running. To determine if this is true, you can use a Microsoft VBScript to determine if the web application being profiled by ANTS Profiler is still running.
To do this, open a command prompt and change directory (cd) to %systemroot%\system32. Next, run
cscript iisapp.vbsThis will respond with the currently-running application pools on the server. If ANTS Profiler is working correctly, something similar to the following will be shown:
On versions of ANTS previous to 2.7, the app pool may be called StandAloneAppPool.W3WP.exe PID: 1232 AppPoolId: RedGateTestAppPool
