CloudMonitor provides multiple metrics, such as the inbound bandwidth and outbound bandwidth, to help you monitor the status of Virtual Private Network (VPN) Gateway. CloudMonitor also allows you to set alert rules for these metrics so that you can receive alerts when any exception occurs.

After you purchase VPN Gateway, CloudMonitor automatically collects data based on these metrics.
