WebProcessInformation Class

Provides information about the worker process that hosts ASP.NET.

Namespace: System.Web.Management
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
public sealed class WebProcessInformation
public final class WebProcessInformation
public final class WebProcessInformation
Not applicable.

ASP.NET health monitoring allows production and operations staff to manage deployed Web applications. The System.Web.Management namespace contains the health-event types responsible for packaging application health-status data, and the provider types responsible for processing this data. It also contains supporting types that help during the management of health events.

Instances of the WebProcessInformation class contain information that is obtained using any of the types derived from the WebManagementEvent type.

Your application needs the appropriate permissions to access protected information provided by this type.

The following example is an excerpt of the configuration file you could use to enable ASP.NET to log error events that contain process information.

<healthMonitoring 
  enabled="true" heartBeatInterval="0">

    <rules>
     <add 
       name="All Errors Default"
       eventName="All Errors"
       provider="EventLogProvider"
       profile="Default"
       minInterval="00:01:00" />
    </rules>

</healthMonitoring>
NoteNote:

In most cases you will be able to use the ASP.NET health-monitoring types as implemented, and you will control the health-monitoring system by specifying values in the healthMonitoring configuration section. You can also derive from the health-monitoring types to create your own custom events and providers. For an example of creating a custom event class, see the Example section.

The following example has two parts. The first is an excerpt of a configuration file that enables ASP.NET to use a custom event that uses the WebProcessInformation type.

The second shows how to implement the custom event.

Ensure that your custom event is raised at the proper time, that is, when the equivalent system health event it replaces would be raised.

<healthMonitoring 
  enabled="true" heartBeatInterval="0">

    <eventMappings>
      <add  
        name="SampleProcessInformation" 
        type="SamplesAspNet.SampleWebProcessInformation, webprocessinformation, Version=1.0.1585.27289, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3648e5c763a8239f, processorArchitecture=MSIL"/>
    </eventMappings>
  
    <rules>
      <add 
        name="Custom Process Information"
        eventName="SampleProcessInformation" 
        provider="EventLogProvider"
        profile="Default"/>
    </rules>

</healthMonitoring>

The following example shows how to implement a custom event that uses the WebProcessInformation type.


using System;
using System.Text;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Management;

namespace SamplesAspNet
{
    // Implements a custom WebBaseEvent type that 
    // uses WebProcessInformation.
    public class SampleWebProcessInformation: 
        WebManagementEvent
    {
        private StringBuilder eventInfo;
        // Instantiate SampleWebProcessInformation.    
        public SampleWebProcessInformation(string msg, 
            object eventSource, int eventCode) : 
        base(msg, eventSource, eventCode)
        {
            // Perform custom initialization.
            eventInfo = new StringBuilder();
            eventInfo.Append(string.Format(
            "Event created at: {0}", 
            EventTime.ToString()));
        }   

        // Raises the event.
        public override void Raise()
        {
            // Perform custom processing. 
            eventInfo.Append(string.Format(
            "Event raised at: {0}", 
            EventTime.ToString()));

            // Raise the event.
            base.Raise();
        }

        public string GetAccountName()
        {
            // Get the name of the account.
            return (string.Format(
                "Account name: {0}", 
                ProcessInformation.AccountName));
        }

        public string GetProcessId()
        {
            // Get the process identifier.
            return (string.Format(
                "Process Id: {0}", 
                ProcessInformation.ProcessID.ToString()));
        }

        public string GetProcessName()
        {
            // Get the requests in execution.
            return (string.Format(
                "Process name: {0}", 
                ProcessInformation.ProcessName));
        }

        //Formats Web request event information.
        public override void FormatCustomEventDetails(
            WebEventFormatter formatter)
        {
            base.FormatCustomEventDetails(formatter);

            // Add custom data.
            formatter.AppendLine("Custom Process Information:");
            formatter.IndentationLevel += 1;

            // Display the process information.
            formatter.AppendLine(GetAccountName());
            formatter.AppendLine(GetProcessId());
            formatter.AppendLine(GetProcessName());
            formatter.IndentationLevel -= 1;
            formatter.AppendLine(eventInfo.ToString());
        }
    }
