Every now and then your server og laptop goes crazy taking up all your CPU and RAM. Most of us head straight to the “Task Manager” only to find the w3wp process. Unfortunately this doesnt provide you with any insights on which web site in you IIS that is actually causing the issue.

Here is the trick on how to get to the detailed information:

1. Log on to the server and head straight to “Task Manager”

2. Navigate to the Ressource Monitor

3. Start your CMD and go to the Inetsrv folder (see Picture)

4. Track the number and see what is causing the “workload”
