Display Services Using IIS Manager Extensions

Using IIS Manager extensions in AppFabric, you can display Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services through the Services page. This page is invoked by clicking the Services icon from within the AppFabric section of the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager interface. Within the Services page you can enumerate and view both configuration-based and file-based services. Tagless service configurations are also supported. No distinction is made when displaying a service as to its durability - either durable or not durable. Only services hosted in the Windows Process Activation service (WAS) will be displayed on this page. The Details pane at the bottom of the Services page contains configuration information and WCF monitoring statistics for a specific service. For complete information about how to invoke the Services page to view services in Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server, and how to interpret the values in the Details pane, refer to Services Page.

The context menu of a service is invoked by right-clicking the service. Alternatively, the same actions are available in the Actions pane. You can then choose one of the following options:

  • Configure. To edit the service configuration settings for a specific service, right-click a specific service and select Configure from the context menu. This invokes the Service Configuration Dialog Box. You can then modify the General, Monitoring, Workflow Persistence, Availability, Security, or Performance properties.

  • View Endpoints. This invokes the Endpoints Page, which displays all endpoints exposed by the selected service.

  • View Persisted WF Instances. This invokes the Persisted WF Instances page, which displays all persisted workflow instances for the selected service. For more information, refer to Persisted Instances Page and General Configuration.

    If a Workflow service instance is not configured to use persistence, this option will be disabled.

  • View Tracked WF Instances. This invokes the Tracked WF Instances page, which displays active and tracked workflow instances that have completed (both durable and nondurable). This page only provides visibility into workflow instances that have been initialized with the appropriate monitoring configuration for the parent service and is independent of persistence configuration. For more information, refer to Tracked WF Instances.

  • View Tracked Events. This invokes the Tracked Events Page, which contains a filterable list of tracked events for that specific service.
