How can we improve Azure Networking?

VPN Gateway monitoring

It would be great to have monitoring options in the azure portal which would show the bandwidth usage and throughput charts. It would help in figuring out if the 100mbps limit of the standard gateway sku is being hit at peak loads. If the details can be further provided for each individual site-to-site or point-to-site connection then that would be great thing to have. It would help immensely in finding out which connection is hogging the bandwidth the most.

    It should be far easier to monitor the status of an S2S VPN gateway. This ( is far too convoluted and the "status" condition is unavailable for performance metric monitoring. It's a simple boolean value -- Connected/Disconnected. Please make it easier to monitor.

    I would like to be able to monitor point-to-site vpn client connections. I can see the internally allocated ip addresses, but not the external client IP addresses or login names.

    Would be very helpful!

    How to monitor the Site-to-Site connection and reset the Azure VPN Gateway if the connection status is unhealthy?

    We have an option in the monitor > setup alerts & actions, but is there any option to only check the connection status ? we do see so many option to get virtual network gateway connection status but it didn't give us the expected output.

    If I have a Azure VNet and it is connected to 4 different sites (v.i.z. SiteA, SiteB, SiteC and SiteD) using an Virtual Network Gateway (VPN). Can you please introduce a feature where I can know the bandwidth consumption information for any one of the Sites only (say SiteB only).

    Please add a way to gather report on usage stats on Azure VPN like peak throughput MB/s, Average throughput etc from the console.

    Helps us as we dont have to raise support case every time to check performance when there is an issue

    We need some basic monitoring of VPN status on our side of a client connection, so this feature would be very helpful

    Is there any update on this and when it is planned in for?

    We too are looking for such a report on bandwidth utilization per gateway connection.

    Hi Shreyas,
    Thanks for your feedback. This is an area we are actively looking into and will have a good solution soon that meets your needs.

    throughput and current bandwith monitoring on the vpn gateway could be more value for the gateway.

    There is a third party very Azure oriented monitoring/automation service called CloudMonix (successor of AzureWatch) that monitors S2S VPN's, can send alerts, and even attempt to auto-reconnect disconnected connections. CloudMonix is available at - hope this helps
