Azure Network Watcher Explained
So finally Microsoft released a feature which allows us to troubleshoot networking issues in Azure! It provides us with multiple options to check on route paths, view list of Network Security groups to see which ACL’s take priority and such. And also it can be used to check traffic flow from one location to another! NOTE: It is only available in some US regions as of now.
Now its quite limited in terms of regions it is available in and it is still in preview so we need to register the service manully, using Powershell.
