What can I use this for?

You can use this solution if you intend to:

  1. Measure network bandwidth usage for pilot users on-boarded to Office 365
  2. Measure network bandwidth usage for services like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams
  3. Measure network bandwidth usage for traffic to 'Optimize' category Office 365 endpoints
  4. Measure number of TCP connections used while connecting to Office 365 services like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business
  5. Measure number of TCP connections used while connecting to 'Optimize' category Office 365 endpoints

This solution uses Azure monitoring, specifically Service Map, dependencies for Service Map like Microsoft Monitoring Agent, Dependency Agent are applicable to this solution. This concept assumes you have pilot batch of users on-boarded to Office 365 or you can monitor a subset of user traffic accessing Office 365 services.

You can apply this concept for measuring any SaaS/PaaS traffic as long as you can filter the traffic based on Process Name or Destination IP endpoints, not limited to Office 365.

This solution will allow you to monitor and analyse the following example scenarios:

• Bandwidth used for a particular process or set of processes over a set period of time

• Bandwidth used by the machine over a set period of time

• Bandwidth used in connections to a specific port

• Bandwidth used to a specific IP address or range of addresses

• IP geolocation of the endpoints connected to

Prerequisites

Azure Subscription

Azure Monitoring/Log analytics workspace

Microsoft Monitoring Agent (MMA)

Dependency Agent

 

New Announcements (Since December 2019)

  1. UDP now supported for measuring network bandwidth usage of Teams media traffic (Audio, Video, Screen Sharing), update your Dependency Agent to the latest version for UDP support
  2. Sample Queries for measuring network bandwidth usage and TCP connections to 'Optimize' category Office 365 endpoints
