Get the Most Out of Your Investment

The Internet Information Services (IIS) Health Check provides insights into the health of your IIS environment. This engagement uses a number of tools to collect data and statistics about the most important and critical aspects of your IIS environment. The goal of this health check is to proactively diagnose and analyze the data collected to make recommendations based on best practices for your IIS environment. This can help you to use best practices and avoid potential problems in the future. The tools used are low impact and only collect information about IIS settings, architecture, performance and administration. The tools act in a read only manner and do not make changes to your servers. The health check data gathering is performed with a LG Networks, Inc. field engineer onsite. Data analysis may be completed post-visit. Documentation, reports and prescriptive guidance are provided to your staff based on the findings. Follow-up days are available upon request.

The IIS Health Check is designed for senior IT staff members and engineers in charge of supporting and managing your IIS environment. The IIS Health Check is available only for Premier Support customers and provides guidance at many levels of your organization. Whether you are a CIO, a mid-level IT manager, or an IT administrator, you can receive support and guidance to help you increase your operational efficiency, maximize system uptime, and reduce costs. This can lead to more effective use of Internet Information Services.
