Overall Satisfaction with PRTG Network Monitor

PRTG is an excellent tool for monitoring bandwidth utilization in our organization. It gives us complete real-time data on bandwidth utilization of all our external and internal connections.
  • Bandwidth utilization.
  • Historic data of circuit health.
  • Monitors device health.
  • Addition of new Sensors to accommodate new networking vendors.
  • Support of Google Maps for geographical mapping.
  • Support of new APIs on the PRTG.
  • PRTG gives us real-time traffic monitoring on our bandwidth, including both internal and external.
  • With PRTG, we can set up alerts for circuit latency and downtime.
  • More SNMP support and features could be added to make it a more robust monitoring platform.
PRTG is a great tool for real-time traffic monitoring. It gives you a perfect graphical representation of bandwidth utilization on any of the network interface. With its ability to detect packet loss and utilization in real time, it gives us an oversight of our network.
Most of the tools in the market do not provide real-time data with such accuracy.
PRTG is well suited for real-time bandwidth utilization. You can also view traffic based on specific segmentation and VLANs. PRTG, however, is less robust when it comes to SNMP monitoring of devices. Device hardware details and monitoring can be improved. It does provide sensors to monitor Virtual machines and their health. It is great if only bandwidth, CPU load, disk space, and memory need to be monitored.
