PRTG is a network monitoring tool that helps you to ensure that your computer systems are running smoothly and that no outages occur. Network monitoring is also important to increase the efficiency of your network by knowing bandwidth and resource consumption.
Large enterprises, as well as small and medium sized companies need an IT network for their daily work to process and store lots of data. Therefore, they operate servers, routers, and databases. Since this data is vital for daily business processes, it is necessary to rely on a network management software to protect the network from damage caused by faults and system errors and to ensure that users and customers can access information quickly and seamlessly.
A good and comprehensive network monitoring system is the heart of any network management solution. Only if you have reliable data about the state, the performance, and the usage of your network, you will be able to effectively manage your network. Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor combines powerful monitoring tools with network management functionality.
If one of your devices does not respond, if an unusual event is registered or a set threshold is being crossed, the network management software send you an instant alert that helps you to troubleshoot all network issues. You can also configure the PRTG network management systems to take a certain action in case of an alarm, e.g. restart Windows services or execute an external script. This way, network management can take care of many frequent network problems without any intervention from your side
