Monitoring the status of VPN tunnels

The Monitoring > VPN menu makes it possible to look up the status of each tunnel configured in each topology.

To be able to monitor the status of VPN topologies containing firewalls of version 4.2 or higher, you need to use an SMC server of version 2.8.1 or higher.

Scroll over the status icon of a tunnel to show a tool tip indicating its status as well as the status of peers.

VPN topologies monitoring screen

In the Topology identifier (rulename) column, you can search for topologies by the rulename identifiers used in VPN audit logs on SN firewalls.

When the SMC server is updated, the configuration must be deployed again on firewalls so that the rulename identifier can be seen in logs.
