IIS Troubleshooting

Recently I wrote a troubleshooting blog for work that uses a couple built-in Windows/IIS features and finally Debug Diagnostics to determine root cause of high CPU usage for a website. The referenced utilities were the Worker Processes feature of IIS, Resource Monitor, and DebugDiag. By using these 3 free utilities, you can diagnose long running pages/queries, determine if the process is waiting on a response from IIS or SQL or another external call, and possibly even find the resolution for the problem by taking a process dump and evaluating it. Check out the full blog post here.
