I need do configure IIS 7 logging module to don't log some requests like /working.html what I'm using for external monitoring IIS site (with basic http get/head requests using nagios or upstream failover proxy).

Problem that currently most of access log is filled by that monitoring requests and I want to don't log them all.

How can I make this configuration with native HttpLogging module. If not possible to do with it (looks like), then let me ask other ways to reach needed functionality.

The Advanced Logging Module in IIS7 is meant for situations like yours.
