Network Performance Monitor is now generally available in Azure Government

Sarah Weldon

We are pleased to announce the availability of Network Performance Monitor (NPM) in Azure Government Cloud-Virginia. Check out what NPM can do for you below:


Network Performance Monitor (NPM) is a cloud based hybrid network monitoring solution, that monitors connectivity between:

  • Cloud deployments and on-premises locations
  • Multiple data centers and branch offices
  • Mission critical multi-tier applications/micro-services
  • User locations and web based applications (HTTP/HTTPs)

Network monitoring for hybrid environments

Monitor network connectivity across remote branch & field offices, store locations, data centers and clouds. With NPM, you can detect network issues before your users complain. Key advantages are:

  • Monitor loss and latency across various subnets and set alerts
  • Monitor all paths (including redundant paths) on the network
  • Troubleshoot transient & point-in-time network issues, that are difficult to replicate
  • Determine the specific segment on the network,  that is responsible for degraded performance
  • Monitor the health of the network, without the need for SNMP

Getting Started

To start using NPM, you will need to install (software) agents, at various locations (VMs) on the network. A minimum of two agents are required to monitor network connectivity.  The links below, should help you get started:
