PRTG 9 Manual: Key Features

PRTG monitors your network and requires no third party software.

What PRTG Can Be Used For

  • Monitor and alert for uptimes/downtimes or slow servers.
  • Monitor and account bandwidth and network device usage.
  • Monitor system usage (CPU loads, free memory, free disk space etc.).
  • Classify network traffic by source/destination and content.
  • Discover unusual, suspicious or malicious activity with devices or users.
  • Measure QoS and VoIP parameters and control service level agreements (SLA).
  • Discover and assess network devices.
  • Monitor fail-safe using a failover cluster setup.


What PRTG Includes

The PRTG installer contains all modules and software necessary to run the monitoring system without the need for third party modules, including:

  • Paessler's own fast and efficient database system to store the raw monitoring results as well as logs, Toplists, and ToDos (outperforms SQL servers for monitoring data).
  • Built-in web server with HTTP and HTTPS support for the user interface.
  • Mail server for automatic email delivery.
  • Report generator to create reports in HTML or Portable Document Format (PDF).
  • Graphics engine for user-friendly charts.
  • Network analysis module to automatically discover devices and sensors.
  • An Application Programming Interface (API) allows users to program their own features.

PRTG Network Monitor can support thousands of sensors and can optionally work with multiple remote probes to monitor multiple sites or network segments from one central core installation. You can also configure fail-safe monitoring using a cluster installation.

The software is based on Paessler's reliable monitoring technology, which has been constantly improved since 1997 and is already used by more than 150,000 users around the world every day. Attractive licensing packages from freeware (up to 10 sensors) to enterprise level (with thousands of sensors) make sure that every user finds the proper solution.
