Show_channels.fwx can be used to determine the status of all channels on a particular server for the purpose of directing traffic on your load balancing hardware solution.

Great. Now I need to figure out which values tell me a channel's busy or waiting. I use this to tell me if we're bogged down and unresponsive. The unresponsive part's pretty easy (doesn't respond) but I'd like to know that, for instance, channels 1,2,3 are busy so I can route requests to another server.

In order to support Vista, Windows 2008 Server and later versions of Windows, this information has been moved to the user registry hive for the user that FoxWeb is running as. If you log in as that user, then you can look for the information under hkey_current_user. If not, you will need to figure out which of the subkeys of hkey_users corresponds to this user.

Hi. I've been using a fxp for years that ran fwchanstat. I would then strtran some of the table and build a page showing the channel status on all my machines.
After upgrading to FW 4, the last script info disappeared. I used the show_channels.fwx and it does the same thing.
My registry (hklm/current/software/Aegis/Foxweb etc) shows nothing related to this status.
Is this info no longer available?
