Host Template: Cloud - Azure - Virtual Network Gateways

Azure VPN gateways are a type of virtual network gateway which allows encrypted traffic to be sent over the public Internet between an Azure virtual network and an on-premises location.

This Host Template allows you to monitor all the metrics you need to efficiently run Azure Virtual Network Gateway on Microsoft Azure. After installation, you'll be able to check the average bandwidth of a tunnel in bytes per second as well as monitor packet and bytes transmissions accurately.

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
Azure - Virtual Net Gateway - Tunnel Bandwidth Average bandwidth of a tunnel in bytes per second [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A B/s
Azure - Virtual Net Gateway - Tunnel Bytes Outgoing/Incoming bytes of a tunnel [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A B
Azure - Virtual Net Gateway - Tunnel Packets Outgoing/Incoming packet count of a tunnel [Default Timespan = 5mins, Granularity = 5mins] N/A N/A
