The Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) Management Pack includes the following features:
- Service monitoring—Forefront UAG requires
that a number of services are running for correct operation. The
status of these services is mapped to monitors for the classes that
represent the Forefront UAG server.
- Built-in application monitoring—The health of
several Forefront UAG built-in applications is monitored according
to the status of the relevant services.
- Event monitoring—A number of informational
events on Forefront UAG health status are collected and
- DirectAccess monitoring—DirectAccess
monitoring comprises the health state of the DirectAccess
components: 6to4 router, DNS64, IP-HTTPS gateway, ISATAP router,
Network security, Teredo relay, and Teredo server. DirectAccess
monitoring is also affected by performance threshold monitoring,
whereby the health state of components is determined according to
the last sampled value (or average of several values). DirectAccess
monitoring includes the measuring of three user activity quantities
that indicate successful connections of clients to the DirectAccess
server: number of sticky connections, number of Main Mode Security
Associations, and Teredo packet receive rate (a warning is
displayed if all three values are zero).
Note: Note that the Forefront UAG Management Pack incorporates the Windows 2008 R2 Direct Access Server Management Pack. You do not need to install the Windows DirectAccess Server Management pack as a separate download in order to monitor Forefront UAG DirectAccess.
