currently we have our IIS7 website defualt logging data to a file. Works great. Now, we've got some system monitoring stuff which 'pings' a file in the site. This file is called HttpMonitor.html If the file exists and it's content is '1' then the ping is considered 'successful'. anything else or the file doesn't exist, the ping is considered 'failed'.
after a certain amount of failed attempts for a period of time, warnings go off, etc.
That's working great.
BUT, it pings the server every ... 3 seconds or 10 seconds or whatever. therefore, the log files are getting filled up with lots of crap entries.
Intially, i created a DIFFERENT website (on the same machine) and let the monitor hit that. Now, that worked great .. but that was only now telling me if the server was up. not if the server AND the website is up.
So, is there a way I can get the logging to NOT log any requests that come from.. say .. and ip address or when it tries to hit a certain resource?
