Monitoring Microsoft Radius Servers

The eG Enterprise suite provides out-of-the-box monitoring support to the Windows Internet Authentication Service, and proactively alerts administrators of authentication, authorization, or accounting bottlenecks encountered by the NPS server. The specialized Microsoft Radius monitoring model (see Figure 2) offered by the eG Enterprise suite executes a variety of tests on the NPS server; these tests, in turn, use the perfmon utility of Windows to extract critical performance statistics pertaining to the services offered by the NPS server.
