Displaying IIS Server Metrics

A significant problem has developed for me: how to let a user of as silverlight app know what is going on the web server running it? For example: How many users are on it? Is there a process hogging all the resources?  Does the app have enough bandwidth to run properly? Turns out IIS 7 does provide tools to query and serve up this information in real time!

And one such feature is being able to use PowerShell to script the tools to provide the data you want.

And on there was an article about putting real-time gauges on a web site,. This could be a great tool for displaying the data to users.
