Overall Satisfaction with PRTG Network Monitor

It is used mainly by the network team but is also known to be used by a certain server team, to monitor up/down status of various network devices as well as circuit utilization and other vital stats on the devices.
  • Monitor up/down status.
  • Provides historical and current data of utilization of circuits.
  • Has numerous sensors of different variables to monitor.
  • Would like to see a more intuitive user interface.
  • Provide backup configs where necessary.
  • Update MIBs for more compatibility.
  • For the costs it has a very good ROI.
We still use SolarWinds alongside PRTG. SolarWinds has a lot more features and functionality than PRTG.
There isn't a number to call for support, so it's all done through email. Can be frustrating sometimes if you can't get someone on the phone right away.
