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.

The EventLogWebEventProvider, the failure audit, and the error health-monitoring events are configured (enabled) by default. This means that the failure audit and the error health-monitoring events are logged in the Windows Application Event Log by default.

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 provider, see How to: Implement the Health Monitoring Custom Provider Example.

The following configuration file excerpt shows how to specify a provider of type EventLogWebEventProvider to handle success audit events. The EventLogWebEventProvider and the failure audit health-event types to monitor are configured by default. To monitor the success audits, you need to configure them, as shown in the example code.

<healthMonitoring 
  enabled="true" heartbeatInterval="10">

  <rule>
    <add name="Success Audits Default"
      eventName="Success Audits"
      provider="EventLogProvider"
      profile="Default"
      minInterval="00:01:00" />
  </rule>

</healthMonitoring>
