ONE Active Server Pages Product Home Page Developer Site Version


Monitoring ASP Server Performance

Real-time information about ASP Server performance is displayed on the the Server Monitoring page of the Sun ONE ASP Administration Console.

If performance monitoring has been disabled as described in Disabling Performance Monitoring, you cannot view this server performance information. Disabling server performance monitoring is a recommended security precaution if you are running Sun ONE ASP in a shared Web hosting environment.

Note icon Note This feature is not available with Sun ONE Active Server Pages for Windows. On Windows systems, performance monitoring information is available via the Windows NT or Windows 2000 Performance Monitor. See Microsoft documentation for more information.
