Visual KPI Website and Virtual Directory Structure

This article will help you understand the folder or directory structure of a Visual KPI installation.

By default, a Visual KPI instance is installed under the main Transpara website. However, you can install a new Visual KPI instance into any existing website.

Visual KPI directory structure

Under the main Transpara website, a new Visual KPI Server installation adds three virtual directories:

  • VisualKPI (website)
  • WebService (Virtual KPI Designer)
  • An additional virtual directory is created for each Visual KPI Interface installed to the same instance

Visual KPI directory structure

The Transpara website and its associated virtual directories are each mapped to a folder within the Visual KPI installation folder. The default folder for a Visual KPI Servers installation is C:\Program Files\Transpara\Visual KPI. Within the default folder, you’ll see a sub-folder for each instance of Visual KPI you install on the machine.

The following table shows the relationships between the Visual KPI components, the related IIS components, and application folders (using the default names).

Note: With the exception of the WebService virtual directory, the names shown here can be changed during the installation of the Visual KPI Server.
