Trouble-free environment/device/network monitoring.

  • November 23, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
PRTG affords us the ability to focus on completing projects as well as beginning new projects without having to worry about manually monitoring the health of the devices that comprise our networks.
What do you dislike about the product?
While we love PRTG's library of sensors, it would be nice if the tool they offered for SNMP walks would align with MIB files to identify corresponding device states, descriptions, etc. This is mostly a nit-pick, as even SolarWinds' walk tool doesn't really offer this, but it would be great.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use PRTG to monitor network health. We are alerted anytime a change is detected that does not match parameters we've set for devices, so that issues are dealt with swiftly and before they turn serious, which saves us time and money in the long-term.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you're using SolarWinds, try out PRTG's Network Monitor trial. You'll notice that the interface is much cleaner and feels less cluttered. Device monitoring is just as fast and efficient as in SolarWinds.

PRTG is a lifesaver

  • September 01, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
PRTG has been instrumental in allowing us to setup real time active monitoring of all web servers and continually evaluate resource management and usage across boxes. With built in selectable sensors covering a vast array of areas you would be hard pressed to find areas not covered. PRTG was easy to setup and use with documentation online to follow as needed. We are currently using for limited purposes so still fall into the free range of sensors but are looking to expand in the future to more devices.
What do you dislike about the product?
Once you go over 100 sensors the pricing can go up quickly. Initially upon install PRTG wanted to auto scan and add all devices on the network - maybe I missed something but I spent a bunch of time then removing devices I did not want it to list currently. The user interface is decent but could be slightly more polished.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We have multiple web servers that we wanted real time notificatons and warnings on when certain limits were reached regarding both CPU usage and memory usage. This allows us to track and proactively handle issues before customers and clients can call in reporting slowness on their sites. With the built in email and text notifications you can receive these anytime and anywhere.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Play with the main built into sensors
