This is the application_pool metricset of the module iis.

Metric values are divided in several groups:

The process object contains System/Process counters like the the overall server and CPU usage for the IIS Worker Process and memory (currently used and available memory for the IIS Worker Process).

The net_clr object which returns ASP.NET error rate counter values. Users can specify the application pools they would like to monitor using the configuration option application_pool.name, else, all application pools are considered.
