IIS has its own graphical tool. It collects a wide variety of
statistics. If you go to the Computer management console in Winders and
then Performance Logs and Alerts, you can create a new counter log.
Then to view the output, go to the Performance tool under Administrative
tools, open the log file and add the stuff you want to see. This offers
a real time view as well as snapshots. If you want to view trends over
time you'll have to do something else.
Another thing I noticed was that you can change the output format of the
IIS logs. The default is w3c Extended Log file format. Looking at
those log files (which are stored in %SYSDIR%\system32\LogFiles) you
could probably run webalizer on them directly or with few modifications.
