Azure software-defined networking, especially in a hybrid cloud, can be challenging to visualize. In this course, you use Azure monitoring tools to visualize, maintain, and optimize Azure virtual networks and virtual private network connections.
If you have a site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) between your on-premises environment and one or more virtual private networks (VNets) in Azure, then you probably have excellent visibility into the on-premises side of the network equation. In this course, Monitoring Microsoft Azure Hybrid Cloud Networks, you will learn how to use Microsoft Azure monitoring tools to monitor Azure network (as well as on-prem) resources closely and effectively. First, you will learn how to monitor traffic between Windows Server and Linux virtual machines (VMs) running in Azure. Next, you will use Network Watcher and Network Performance Monitor (NPM) to diagnose inter-VNet connection problems. Finally, you will explore geo-distributed traffic by using Azure Traffic Manager Traffic View. When you are finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of Azure hybrid network monitoring that will help you as you move forward in your career as an Azure architect or administrator.
