From the AppInsight for IIS details view, click a website in the Sites resource. The Sites resource shows every site hosted by that server.

AppInsight for IIS can help you monitor and troubleshoot IIS. However, a software monitoring solution cannot detect failed hardware issues, such as insufficient RAM or a failed cooling fan. To detect hardware issues, you also need to enable hardware health monitoring.
