Mostly IIS layer is used to plan the same qv server over other non qlikview web application.

Re: what is the use of IIS layer over the normal qlikview web server layer

Hi Raghavi,


Both QlikView Web Server and IIS will delive rthe same result in terms of QlikView functionality and here is no performance difference between the two. Typically it is external factors to QlikView that are the reason to choose IIS. These reasons may include the following:

•The customer is more familiarand comfortable with IIS
◦Often QlikView is an extraservice that systems administrators have to look after and may not be QlikView experts. IIS is often a more familiar component
◦Some customer may mandate theuse of IIS
•You want detailed logging ofweb activity or performance
◦While QlikView server logs sessions, QlikView Web Server does not log details on the hits on all of thepages and components, IIS can do this. This information can be used to monitor usage and errors
◦IIS includes a range of performance counters that can be used to monitor the performance of the webserver
•You want to integrate with an IIS based SSO system or have more fine grained control over security of web content
◦QlikView web server includes arange of security options to support typical out of the box functionality. IIS supports these also but allows the use of common SSO ISAPI modules to integrate into SSO systems as well as other options for securing content.
•The server is already hosting some content through IIS or you want to use mash-ups
◦The QlikView webserver cannot host .net content, if you want to host .net content alongside QlikView or use the QlikView workbench then IIS must be used to host this
•SSL configuration is more straightforward
◦IIS has wizard driven SSL setup process

Hope this helps
