Monitoring your Microsoft ADFS Infrastructure is pretty simple if you use the performance counter data set which comes out of the box of Federation Servers and Federation Proxies.
the only thing you need to configure within GreenLight is a Performance Counter Sensor where you specify the necessary counters


  • Token Requests/Sec
  • Token Requests
  • *Authentication Failures
  • ExtranetAccountLockouts
  • RequestLatency
  • RejectedRequests/Sec
  • RejectedRequests
  • OutstandingRequests


For example the average token requests per second should be between 1 and 100. If you see peaks of several hundred token requests per second, this is indicative of an issue with Federation Service capactity.


There are plenty of other Performance Counters which you can simply add to your GL configuration.
