IIS7 has an inbuilt FREB module which does the Failed Request tracing. Read more about FREB here . In a nutshell, it is similar to ETW tracing. It is now in-built (optional) functionality of IIS7. This will create XML files which will be stored in C:\Inetpub\logs\FailedReqLogFiles\W3SVC*. * - website identifier. My module will give an UI interface to display all available files with their name, path, URL and status code.


  • Displays FREB XML files and has an inbuilt browser where you can preview them
  • Has a inbuilt web browser with pre-added cool IIS/ASP.NET websites
  • iisRequests tab which will display the current running requests. A GUI alternative to appcmd.exe (only for listing the current no. of w3wp.exe running, no. of AppDomains, no. of Clients connected and their details).


  • UI for viewing current requests and save them to a file
  • Inbuilt web-browser with pre-added cool site
