Hello there,

Thanks for your KB thread. Can I check with you if you have already deploy the sensor to monitor the VPN status? If yes, you may right click on the sensor --> Historic Data --> Create report.

Please let me know if I am understand your question correctly.

Greetings- The historical data is giving me just Sensor: Ping Status. I need to get the status of the tunnels which I know they go up and down for sure.

Hi there,

Thanks for feedback. Is that right, now you are using the Ping sensor to monitor the lan address to determine the VPN's status.

You would like to have a sensor that can 'report/monitor' the VPN status, instead of generate a report.

Kindly clarify. Thanks!
