Microsoft IIS is our primary application that we monitor. It helps us know which web servers are having issues so we can dig deeper into the problem. We also take advantage of using a Windows Update application monitor. It helps us understand which servers are struggling to receive updates, or ones that haven't checked in in a while.

We use Solar Winds Server and Application monitor for SQL Server and ISS workloads. It works great for both and the provided templates make it easy for these kinds of Microsoft workloads. Once baselines were established it was easy to monit the performance on these servers. There has not been much need for maintenance since our intial deployment.
