powerful and very intuitive monitoring tool

  • September 24, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The basic function of a network monitoring software should be to provide the administrator with the time to perform other useful tasks instead of having to be permanently aware of the infrastructure of all connected systems.
What do you dislike about the product?
Although they do not express it explicitly, they have a strong dependence on the Microsoft software house, since it only works under the “Microsoft Windows” operating system (they recommend “Windows Server 2012 R2”; for other editions, install the “.NET framework” package 4.5 ”with its updated security patches).
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
IT infrastructure needs a constant review in order to ensure the health of your system. Are there overloaded components, like CPU or memory, for example? Is the temperature of your servers acceptable? Are there Windows servers that restart occasionally during the night? Are you aware of this issue, or missing the clue that something is wrong? You also want to know when hard disks in your environment are nearing maximum capacity, when memory is running low, or you need to upgrade your internet connection due to increasing bandwidth usage. Knowing these network conditions will indicate when it might be time to invest in new hardware resources.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
PRTG is the perfect tool to monitor all your hardware, including servers, routers and switches. You can also constantly monitor bandwidth and applications.

Functionalities and diversification of services

  • April 19, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
We use PRTG as a monitoring tool, to observe consumption and latency of our configured links in our edge router, and also use it as internal monitoring and support in the development of graphs and reports.
What do you dislike about the product?
It meets all the requested requirements regarding interface monitoring, map creations and reports, however when arriving at a certain amount of sensors, we can not add more sensors, thus forcing the purchase to continue the cadatros and monitoring.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Monitoring our dedicated ip link provided by our internet operators, our customers and our internal network, also creating traffic maps of our backbone and generating consumption reports.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Of great value for the use and monitoring of external and internal link, being able besides this monitoring, to be able to create maps and also to generate reports of consumption of the network.

Easy To Manage and Implement

  • December 29, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
The software is very easy to both setup and manage. You can start from a first time setup, and then scanning and importing your environment with default recommended sensors in under an hour, which would provide you with a very good starting point to begin further refinement.

The product is very reliable, and can be setup in an active/passive high availability mode that is included with the base license. Once HA is in place application upgrades are a simple click and the application takes care of the fail-over/take-over process.

The base product covers all of our monitoring needs. From network infrastructure (switches, firewalls, loadbalancers) server infrastructure, and external websites and services the out of the box product should cover the majority of environments. For more advanced needs scripting (Powershell, Batch) can be used to query and output information that can be ingested by PRTG for display.

Remote probes can be used to gather monitoring information from systems and sites that are outside of your network and do not require typical persistent (VPN or other L2/L3 technologies) to monitor remote systems.

Once the product is tuned to your environment knowing when a system or resource is about to have issue and receiving an alert that you can choose to take action on via an action (built into the product) or some human intervention will assist in making your IT group more proactive.
What do you dislike about the product?
The web interface can get slow depending on how many and what kind of sensors your are hosting on the root system. Definitely break your sensors out over multiple remote probes to allow the root to store and display your data.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
System and Service Monitoring - Knowing how are systems are performing and receiving alerts when they are above or below determine thresholds.

Baselining - Knowing how systems are utilized and when over a long time-frame has assisted with budgeting for future technology equipment and services.

PRTG Software

  • October 24, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Flexibility of monitoring equipment. We are able to group equipment by location and device type. We are also able to give access to certain devices to the local IT departments for their monitoring.
What do you dislike about the product?
Currently being ran from one location to monitor all locations gloablly. Sometimes there are false reports that equipment is down if there is high bandwidth usage over the MPLS but not at the locations.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Checking the uptime of devices such as routers, firewalls, access points, switches, and servers. To help in the troubleshooting of problems if they are netowrk related or machine related.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Make sure that if you are monitoring multiple locations that you have sufficient bandwidth so that you do not get false reports that locations or equipment is down.

Helpful, Useful And Powerful tool

  • September 19, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
It´s an excellent tool, allows to monitor the data network in my company, get reports, access from anywhere with an intuitive and pleasant interface.
What do you dislike about the product?
PRTG manages its own database on the grounds that it is faster and represents less of a burden on the system running the data collector. Although the information is always available for export to various formats, it does not compare to the simple creation of a user with read-only rights in a database.
In addition, they have a strong dependence on the Microsoft software house as it only works under the operating system "Microsoft Windows".
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
TWith this tool we can see the state of the data network so accurately that it has been able to detect faults that without using PRTG could have lasted hours. It provides us with detailed monitoring data and historical reports for all network components, which we use to calculate growth.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
The PRTG Network Monitor has already a large set of sensors, so you wont need to write any line of code.
