Overall Satisfaction with PRTG Network Monitor

Recently we have used PRTG Network Monitor to monitor our customers' data centers, we are using around 30,000 sensors in PRTG Network Monitor and the performance is quite good. We are having some problems with the memory consumption of the application, but with some housekeeping, we are having one of the best experiences that a monitoring app can offer.

PRTG Network Manager is an easy to get going tool, easy to implement, and can go really deep into the monitoring. It's a powerful tool to store monitoring data and to do network dashboards. Paessler, the PRTG Network Monitor proprietary has an excellent partnership with other hardware fabricants, so it is easy to get things to work

If you want precise monitoring of your network and an incredible way to visualize it, you should decide to use PRTG Network Monitor. If you have an on-premises or in-cloud operation and want to know what is going on with your environment. PRTG Network Monitor is well suited to monitor all of the new data centers' needs. PRTG Network Monitor can be less appropriate for old data centers' needs, if you don't have an SNMP connection or MIB it can be frustrating.
