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.

This provider has a comprehensive set of configuration attributes that you can use to customize its behavior.


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 example is a configuration file excerpt that shows how to specify a provider of type SqlWebEventProvider in the <healthMonitoring> section. The <add> element in the <rules> section specifies that the provider will handle audit events.

    <add name="Analysis"
    <add name="SqlWebEventProvider"
    <add name="All Audits"
    type="System.Web.Management.WebAuditEvent, System.Web" 
    <add name="Default"
    <add name="All Audits Default"
    eventName="All Audits"
