General availability: Azure Network Watcher Connection Monitor in all public regions
Posted on Friday, March 30, 2018
The Connection Monitor feature in Azure Network Watcher is now generally available in all public regions. Connection Monitor provides you RTT values on a per-minute granularity. You can monitor a direct TCP connection from a virtual machine to a virtual machine, FQDN, URI, or IPv4 address.
Network scenarios are complex. They are implemented through Network Security Groups, firewalls, user-defined routes, and resources provided by Azure. Complex configurations make monitoring and troubleshooting connectivity problems challenging. Network Watcher Connection Monitor helps reduce the amount of time to detect connectivity problems. The returned results can provide insights into whether a connectivity problem is due to a platform or a user configuration problem.
