Host Network Adapter Status

This monitor tracks the internal vCenter Server events for linkstate down/up per host physical NIC. Check the event description using Health Explorer to confirm the status.

Note that this monitor does not generate an alert by default, as the NIC status is tracked through monitoring the virtual switch or distributed virtual switch that it is connected to. The Veeam MP for VMware monitor for dvSwitch will generate a single alert with rolled up status of all connected host physical NICs.

See the Help Center for more information including reference lists of all Rules and Monitors and full set of User Guides for the Veeam MP for VMware.
