I have enabled Application Pool monitoring for "_Total" instance. Since then I started getting the following IIS probe alert.
What is the cause of the following IIS probe alert ?

localhost APP_POOL_WAS, Current Application Pool State, _Total is 0.0 state which is! = 3 state


It is an intended behavior and caused by pre-defined threshold.
IIS probe uses pre-defined threshold ( Not equal to 3 ) for every Application Pool instance status check monitoring (!= 3) as healthy status is 3.
It looks that status value for "_Total" instance is 0.

This value is fetched from the following Windows Performance Counter.

[Counter] Current Application Pool State
[Instance] _Total


Release : 9.0.2

Component : UIM - IIS


IIS probe alarm just telling you that the value of this counter is 0 and breaching the pre-defined threshold ( Not equals to 3 )
If you would like to disable the threshold, open IIS probe, go to profile, go to [Application Pool] - [_Total], double click [Current Application Pool State], uncheck [Enable Monitoring].
