IIS SERVER OUTAGE REPORTER

you've got a website on a shared (Virtual) server running NT/IIS, it will
go down from time to time.
Most hosting services will automatically restart the HTTP (IIS) server if it fails, and your raw log files will precede the first log entry after a restart with a special heading.
In addition, IIS provides for a special type of ASP file - the global.asa file that enables you to keep a log of your server's outages.
See this page for the free script that allows you to track your server outages. I started to develop a more sophisticated reported that would also indicate the duration of each outage; however, since I'm only using Intermedia.net for hosting, I have stopped. (Intermedia's virtual IIS servers are set up in a manner that doesn't allow ASP scripts to access raw log file which is required to get outage duration. I did have a prototype that worked with Softcomca.com's server - in addition to logging server re-start, the script would open and read from the end of the raw log file to get the time of the last entry before the server re-start, then calculate and log the duration.)
