"Fantastic Monitoring program"

March 03, 2014  |  By Dolpheus

 |  Version: PRTG Network Monitor 13.3.4.2556

Pros

-Supports Netflow, so most networking equipment can export data to it(e.g.: Cisco, MicroTik, Vyatta, HP, pfSense)
-Brings real-time network health and monitoring (even including CPU/RAM/Disk usage on servers) into the price range of small offices
-It's an enterprise solution that scales very well
-Super easy to use and create reports on
-Even monitors uptime if you need proof of uptime

If you haven't tried this out, I definitely recommend it. It has a super simple set-up, offers password and https protection for the web GUI, and is very intuitive, plus it's free to try on 10 sensors.

Cons

The only (and I mean ONLY) complaint I have is that there's not a purchase price for a certain number of sensors withOUT support. They only offer packages with a maintenance program, and some of my clients are happy without the maintenance part.

Summary

Overall, it's a FANTASTIC product! We use it at my company, and we recommend it to all of our clients. 10/10 would recommend.

"Works great. Love the mobile apps"

November 21, 2013  |  By wiseman13

 |  Version: PRTG Network Monitor 13.3.4.2556

Pros

Allows us to monitor our entire backend infrastructure. It might take a bit, but it is flexible enough to monitor any process or stat we have thrown at it.

Cons

It can be cumbersome to setup, but all tools like this are.

Summary

Constant updates. Actively supported web and mobile application interfaces. I am always seeing new and exciting features added. Keep up the good work.

I have found the PRTG team very helpful. You should contact them and I bet they would help you with your issues.

"It has become the best tool I have available"

November 21, 2013  |  By ralliredgts

 |  Version: PRTG Network Monitor 13.3.4.2556

Pros

The easiest interface I've used for network monitoring. I have a 40" LCD rotating maps in my office, as well as a system wide starburst map on my computer at all times. The apps for smartphone and tablet put it in a field of its own. I can monitor everything from my tablet.

Cons

initial setup can be taxing, but that's no fault of the software. Map creation is odd at first, but when it clicks, it's natural.

Summary

This has become the most important resource I have. The foresight and power it gives you as a network admin are priceless. It has shifted how our department works. We went from reactive to proactive, and it has enhanced our position with the company and user base.

"A must for network admins!"

November 21, 2013  |  By jjkingsbury

 |  Version: PRTG Network Monitor 13.3.4.2556

Pros

PRTG is a must if you want to be proactive with your network. Without network monitoring/paging capabilities, we would be stuck with our clients informing us of slowness/issues.. Hardware doesn't last forever, so it's important to get notified prior/during a failure, and PRTG does the job.

Cons

Agreed with the last comment.. There's many sensors and I found myself "overdoing it". I cut back on unnecessary sensors that way I can monitor what's really important.

Summary

Don't listen to PC_Hamster's review, clearly he/she doesn't have any experience in setting up PRTG. If the installer crashes that persons PC, then there's something wrong with PC. Been a PRTG customer for years and I'm very pleased.

"PRTG serves a major role in our core business"

November 21, 2013  |  By FrederikG

 |  Version: PRTG Network Monitor 13.3.4.2556

Pros

Agentless
Flexibility
Web based interface
Granular configuration of sensors
Continuous updates with extra features and improvements

Cons

One might get tempted to "over-monitor" ones network at first because of the countless number of possibilities.

Summary

We have been using PRTG for the past three or four years to offer our customers 24/7 monitoring of their networks, some of which are dispersed all over the globe. PRTG comes with a vast array of default sensors for monitoring all sorts of things from system health status and resource usage to services and database performance. Nonetheless it also offers the flexibility of adding your own custom sensors (the creation of which has become one of our proficiencies).
