    • HTTP transaction sensors

  • Notifications can be triggered by uptimes, downtimes or slow responses

  • Notifications can be sent to you by email, SMS or pager messages

Monitoring data traffic: the right technology

Flexible Alerting

  • PRTG comes with more than 10 built-in technologies such as email, push, play alarm audio files, or triggering HTTP requests. PRTG on-premises also supports SMS text messages and executing EXE files.

  • Our free push notifications help you stay up to date when using your mobile device(s).

  • Adapt the notification system to suit your needs and schedule alerts (such as 'no low priority alerts at night'), or avoid alarm floods by using dependencies and acknowledging. You could even use our PRTG API to write your own notifications.

PRTG Cluster Failover Solution

  • It is always better to be safe than sorry. PRTG Network Monitor allows failover tolerant monitoring. One single failover is included in every PRTG on-premises license!

  • Automatic failover handling: if the primary master of the cluster is not connected or is down, another node immediately takes over all its responsibilities, including the sending of notifications.

  • Take advantage of multiple points of presence monitoring: all nodes monitor all sensors all the time, so you can compare response times from different locations in the network (LAN/WAN/VPN).

  • The hosted version of PRTG also comes with high-availability monitoring. We take care of it for you so there is no cluster support in the cloud.

Distributed Monitoring Using Remote Probes

  • Monitor several networks in different locations and separated networks within your company (for example, DMZ and LAN) with PRTG Remote Probes.

  • Use remote probes to monitor your LAN with the hosted version of PRTG.

  • Get the overview in one central PRTG core installation.

  • You can also use remote probes to distribute monitoring load.

  • Each PRTG license includes unlimited remote probes.

  •  As an MSP you can monitor your customer's networks and increase the quality of service.

Map & Dashboards

  • Visualize your network using real time maps with live status information.

  • Create dashboards with the PRTG map designer and integrate all your network components with more than 300 different map objects – from device and status icons to traffic charts and top lists. Individualize your map using custom HTML.

  • Share your map providing its unique URL on a dashboard within your company LAN only, or even outside your company.

  • Easy to create

    • Build maps with the integrated drag & drop editor

  • Customizable

    • Use custom HTML to create your own map objects

  • Easy to share

    • Publish maps for private or public access

Easy to Understand - Multi Language Interface

PRTG comes in different languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Czech, Japanese, Russian and Simplified Chinese. You can easily switch between these languages, even after the installation. PRTG can also be translated into any other language using the PRTG Translation Tool.

In-Depth Reporting

  • Get the numbers, statistics, and graphs of your specific monitoring data or configuration.

  • Export your historical monitoring data as PDF, HTML, XML, or CSV files and further process your monitoring data.

  • Run reports on demand or schedule regular reports (daily, weekly, monthly). You can create reports for all sensors or only for certain sensors.

High Performance Design and High Security Standards

  • The PRTG web server supports SSL encryption (HTTPS, TLS, Elliptic Curve Cryptography, Forward Secrecy) with OpenSSL libraries of the 1.0.2 branch.

  • PRTG only accepts the most secure ciphers for SSL/TLS connections. These ciphers have to allow Perfect Forward Secrecy and TLS 1.2.

  • All communication between probe(s), PRTG core server(s), and clients is secured via SSL encryption

  • The PRTG web server cleans and sanitizes all GET and POST parameters that could potentially be used for XSS attacks.

  • RTG replaces angle brackets (<>) with braces ({}) in Name fields to prevent XSS attacks.

  • The internal data management of PRTG is not based on an SQL server, so SQL injection attacks are
