Can I monitor the number of active connections of an RAS server?



Could you add a sensor that monitors the amount of active connections that are connected to a Routing and Remote Access server? This would be similar to the way the WMI Terminal Services sensor monitors the amount of connections to the server. Would this be possible for RAS service also?
