Overall Satisfaction with PRTG Network Monitor

[PRTG] Network Monitor system is used as our primary network monitoring solution for monitoring critical business application servers as well as production servers. I had implemented this solution in PSMCL long time ago when I joined, since [then] I have deployed the solution on multiple times. [It's] very simple to deploy, maintain and manage. The auto discovery function along with sensor recommendation works well with minimal configuration. The best thing is that for smaller environments it has 100 sensors for lifetime. That is one more reason I deploy free version on smaller environment for trial then user decides to keep it or not.
  • Ping Jitter to identify connection problems
  • Traffic monitor for monitoring performance of wan links
  • Snmp sensors
  • Maps are difficult to make
  • Sensor recommendations according to hardware.
  • Autodiscovery of network equipment
  • Reports.
  • Reduced number of complaints from users
  • Improved network throughput by identifying bottlenecks in network.
  • Identification of problematic hardware
I have deployed and tested three products for evaluation I found [PRTG Network Monitor] very easy to deploy, the deployment literally took not more than one hour including basic configuration and network discovery. After deployment few configuration changes and creation of maps, reports and little tweaking is required. [Then] it would go through its process of recommendation that took some time to complete, while [on] other hand other software's took lot of time to install and configure. And features were also missing, which resulted in decision in favor of [PRTG Network Monitor].

Do you think PRTG Network Monitor delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with PRTG Network Monitor's feature set?


Did PRTG Network Monitor live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of PRTG Network Monitor go as expected?


Would you buy PRTG Network Monitor again?


For medium to small organizations [PRTG Network Monitor is] very well suited. I found it very easy to deploy and manage, updates are easy to perform, its very rare but if for any reason the system gets problematic it could be redeployed in few minutes and old data could be restored very easily. I recommend to deploy free version for evaluation first use it for as long as you want in that way you can get actual feel of product.
