Detailed performance metrics on AWS Direct Connect
Monitoring starts at the first piece of the puzzle. Check the health status of the dedicated physical network connection between your on-premises network and AWS Direct Connect location, and receive notification whenever it changes from Up to Down.
Should you scale up your connection? Or configure multiple connections to improve capacity? Track the amount of data sent and received in terms of bits and packets, and compare data against provisioned bandwidth to make more informed decisions.
With improved data retention, you can see how the signal strength of your 10Gbps fiber optic transceiver is changing over time. Set up thresholds and receive alerts when the transmit or receive power values drop below the expected range.
Excessive noise or collisions could easily lead to Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) errors. Keep an eye on the CRC error count to quickly identify layer 1 physical connectivity issues like damaged fiber strands or faulty ports.
Unify your monitoring toolset
Stop relying on multiple tools to monitor your cloud and on-premises deployments.
If you're using an AWS-managed VPN connection to transfer business-critical data between your on-premises remote network and AWS, you can use Site24x7 to monitor the status and data transfer statistics for both VPN endpoints (tunnels).
On top of monitoring cloud connectivity, you can use Site24x7 to gain insight into the status of your network infrastructure . Autodiscover network devices, monitor traffic, set up bandwidth usage alerts, and more.
