Host Template: Cloud - Azure - Network Watcher - VNG Troubleshooting

This host template is one of 31 developed by Opsview to provide the most comprehensive Azure monitoring in the industry.

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 - VNG Troubleshooting Check the status of the last troubleshooting results for a target resource [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A NA
