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 WebManagementEvent is the base class for all the ASP.NET health-monitoring event types. It uses the WebProcessInformation class to obtain process information that is available to its derived classes.


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 deriving from the WebManagementEvent class, see the example provided in this topic.

Notes to Inheritors: When formatting your custom event information for display, override the FormatCustomEventDetails method rather than the ToString method. This will avoid overwriting or tampering with sensitive system information. The event code you specify for your custom event must be greater than WebExtendedBase.

The following example shows how to implement a custom event by deriving it from the WebManagementEvent class.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following is an excerpt of the configuration file that enables ASP.NET to use the custom event.
