Global Monitoring Targets

Global Monitoring Targets (GMTs) are AppNeta-maintained, highly available targets that you can depend on to monitor your remote site internet connectivity 24/7. The Azure GMTs allow you to monitor your remote site connectivity to specific Azure regions around the globe. All GMTs support 1 Gbps traffic rates. Some support 10 Gbps as noted.

Auto-target: To simplify your network path configuration, use gmt.pm.appneta.com rather than a specific Azure GMT FQDN to target the closest (lowest latency) Azure GMT.

  • Note that the actual GMT targeted can change as network conditions change, so use this method if that is not an issue.
  • Also, note that the closest Azure GMT is determined based on your DNS resolver’s source IP address. If it is not located close to the source Monitoring Point, the GMT selected may not be the one closest to the Monitoring Point.

Determine IP address of Azure-based GMTs

We recommend using the FQDN to target GMTs as the IP addresses can change. If you need the IP address, it can be determined as follows.

  • Extract information about all Azure GMTs.

     curl https://apim-appneta.azure-api.net/gmt/clusters\?api-version\=v1
    
  • Extract information about a specific Azure GMT. In this example, “norwayeast”.

     curl https://apim-appneta.azure-api.net/gmt/clusters/azurelocations/norwayeast\?api-version\=v1
    
  • Alternatively, you can find information about a specific Azure GMT (for example, “az-no-east.pm.appneta.com”) using nslookup.

     nslookup az-no-east.pm.appneta.com
    

If you have Python 3 installed on your system, you can append |python3 -m json.tool to either of the curl commands above to produce formatted output.
