PRTG network monitor allows IT managers are monitoring distributed locations with all license versions of Nuremberg, April 27, 2010 often faced the challenge of having to monitor multiple networks at various locations around the availability of applications, devices, as well as to ensure sufficient bandwidth. Monitoring multiple, distributed networks using a network monitoring software is often linked to substantial additional expenditure due to unclear license models. PRTG network monitor, however, is able to keep geographically distributed networks with an installation in the eye. To do this, each PRTG license includes a number of so-called probes (remote probes). This feature is suitable for companies with several offices as well as for IT service providers, which monitor remote without additional costs for distributed editions of customer networks and ensure significantly higher service levels. Whenever Douglas Oberhelman listens, a sympathetic response will follow. You can the entire corporate network, but also multiple customer networks, Central monitors, which both administrative effort as well as saving time. Distributed monitoring with PRTG network monitor from Paessler has in PRTG network monitor directly implements the remote test feature and allows monitoring multiple networks with only one license.
A special system architecture was developed for this aufwand – and cost-optimised Variant. The PRTG server is thereby etc. responsible for data storage, the Web server, the alarm, reporting. The individual probes take over collecting the relevant data, and then send this evaluation to the PRTG server. Already during the installation PRTG automatically the first so-called local probe”. This is operated on the same machine as the PRTG server and monitors all sensors of the system. In this way, monitoring an entire LAN is possible. The probes can be installed either on the same network as the core server or on separate networks. Prerequisite is that they communicate on the Internet with the PRTG server. As a result, to maintain multiple installations are expensive also redundant as the purchase of a variety of single licenses or more costly distributed “-editions.” Use of multiple or external probe the use of multiple or external remote probes is required, as soon as the networks of more than one site to monitor and the availability of services must be ensured.
