Host Template: Cloud - Azure - Network Watcher - VM Connectivity

Azure Network Watchers allow you to monitor, diagnose, view metrics, and enable or disable logs for resources in an Azure virtual network. You can monitor communication between virtual machines and endpoints, and view the relationships between resources in a virtual network. Additionally, you can capture packets, troubleshoot and diagnose problems inside a virtual network.

This Host Template allows you to monitor the connectivity between two VMs using a Network Watcher, get the results of troubleshooting for a virtual network gateway, get information on the connection monitors for a specific Network Watcher, and get information on the security rules present for a target VM.

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
Azure - Network Watcher - VM Connectivity Check the status of TCP connection from a source VM to a target VM in Azure via a Network Watcher [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A NA
