Overall Satisfaction with PRTG Network Monitor

Monitoring multiple network devices and servers all over the country. Have used multiple monitoring tools in the past 15 years and this is the best.

Pros

  • Monitors huge range of systems
  • Hierarchical device view summarizes performance data and alerts at every level.
  • QR codes corresponding to a particular device or sensor can be printed out and attached to physical hardware for quick monitoring from a mobile app while in the data center.
  • Reporting capabilities are a highlight, both in terms of canned reports and the ability to customize to your individual needs

Cons

  • Some functionality in Enterprise Console redirects you to the web console.
  • Full of sensors that control everything
  • Rapid ROI for the utility and favors optimization of time
  • Many options to access to the systems health
PRTG is what you'd expect from a solid tool for network and infrastructure monitoring. The hierarchical structure of the device views, the ability to group like sensors with tags, and even the printable QR codes at each level are key usability features that put a wealth of data at your fingertips.
PRTG can monitor anything from servers, switches, routers and NAS appliances to Hyper-V and VMware hosts plus a vast array of popular cloud services, apps and storage providers. Big or small enterprises can benefit from it. The PRTG web console keeps your systems neatly organized with hierarchical groupings.
