DiscountASP.NET Launches Microsoft Failed Request Tracing Module on Windows 2008 Hosting Platform

February 18, 2009 - DiscountASP.NET, a leading innovator in Windows hosting, announces launching support for the Microsoft Failed Request Tracing Module for Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7) on their Windows 2008 hosting platform.

With the launch of Windows 2008 and Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7), Microsoft introduced IIS Manager, a new IIS administration tool which provides end users with a familiar user interface to remotely manage IIS server configurations. Using IIS Manager, DiscountASP.NET customers can view settings and manipulate their web.config files for features that have been delegated to them.

The Failed Request Tracing feature provides a way to diagnose and troubleshoot often difficult-to-see problems with web applications by capturing the complete trace events for a request and recording them to a log file when the request fails. By analyzing the step-by-step request and response process, it is possible to identify problems by examining when they occurred and determining the cause.

To support this launch, DiscountASP.NET introduces new tools in their hosting control panel to allow customers to enable access to the Failed Request Tracing module, to specify where to create the log file in the event of a request failure and to control the number of log files that are created.

“Delivering on our goal to provide customers with maximum control over their shared hosting environment, we now offer a powerful tool to help our customers troubleshoot their web applications.” said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing at DiscountASP.NET. “We are committed to innovation in our Windows 2008 hosting platform.”
