VPN Manager lets you discover, model, and monitor Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) within the network environment. VPN Manager provides VPN and Site discovery and modeling, VPN connectivity status, SNMP trap handling, monitoring of Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) conditions, and performs calculation of and alarming on VPN conditions. VPN Manager is a distributed application.
VPN Manager discovers all of the Provider Edge (PE) routers and interfaces that are forwarding traffic for a particular VPN. Based on this discovery, CA Spectrum creates VPN models representing each unique VPN. These VPN models can then be polled for their current operational status (Up or Down).
 In addition, VPN Manager supports VRF Ping and VRF Path Tracing, which enables you to monitor the status of the paths between the sites in each of the modeled VPNs. You can configure threshold alarms to alert you when path changes exceed the configured tolerance.
VPN Manager provides searches that let you quickly find a particular VPN or all VPNs. Search results contain a list of the current VPNs configured within the environment and their current status. You can drill into a single VPN to see the current list of PE interfaces participating within that VPN as well as the current status of the VPN.
