Monitoring SharePoint Usage through an ASP.NET Web Application

It is a common requirement to gather information around the Windows SharePoint site usage. Organizations prefer to find out the popular sites in their organizations are or what external WSS sites attract the most number of visitors. This will provide information necessary for an organization to identify the important sites in their environment and properly manage them with extra resources if necessary.

One of the common complains around accessing theses data are the inflexibility of gathering information in a central location. The administrator will have to navigate to the selected SharePoint site administration pages to access the data. This will become a more time consuming exercise when the administrator need to collect usage data from larger number of SharePoint sites.

In this article, I am looking at creating an ASP.NET web application that will populate a collection of SharePoint sites in a drop down list for a given SharePoint site collection. The web application will display the usage details of the selected SharePoint site from the list. This will help the SharePoint administrator to gather all SharePoint usage data from a central location with out have to navigate many different SharePoint site locations.
