(RDS) Tip of the Day: Azure Network Watcher introduces Connectivity Check (Preview

Today's Tip...

Diagnosing network connectivity and performance issues in the cloud can be a challenge as your network evolves in complexity. We are pleased to announce the preview of a new feature to check network connectivity in a variety of scenarios when using VM.

The Azure Network Watcher Connectivity Check feature helps to drastically reduce the amount of time needed to find and detect connectivity issues in the infrastructure. The results returned can provide valuable insights to whether a connectivity issue is due to a platform or a potential user configuration. Network Watcher Connectivity Check can be used from the Azure portal, using PowerShell, Azure CLI, and REST API.

Connectivity Check is supported in a variety of scenarios - VM to a VM, VM to an external endpoint, and VM to an on-premise endpoint. Leveraging a common and typical network topology, the example below illustrates how Connectivity Check can help resolve network reachability issues using the Azure portal. There is a VNet hosting a multi-tier web application and four subnets, amongst which are an application subnet and a database subnet.
