PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful bandwidth, availability, CPU and memory monitoring tool. This powerful software solution helps you to keep on top of your network issues and to detect possible issues such as bandwidth congestion or server overloads at an early stage.

The software features powerful memory monitoring capabilites, which are not only ideal for monitoring memory readings on Windows machines, but  can also be used as a for monitoring memory on Linux and Mac OS X computers.

How Does PRTG Monitor Memory and CPU Usage?

PRTG uses SNMP and WMI for memory monitoring on Windows servers and computers. But PRTG is not only a Windows monitor: Linux operating systems can be monitored using an SNMP Daemon, or one of the native Linux sensors (available from version 8). You can set thresholds and configure alarms to notify you if the memory load on one or more servers is getting too high. This is especially important to servers which are accessed by many users: sometimes even the most basic applications, such as web browsers, can use up a lot of memory, which affects the overall server performance. Using the PRTG memory monitoring tool, you will be informed before memory bottlenecks occur. This way, you can take appropriate steps to ensure good network performance and avoid outages and data loss.

PRTG - More Than a Memory monitoring tool

In addition to memory monitoring, PRTG uses SNMP and WMI to monitor CPU usage,  free disk space, disk health, file changes, etc. An advanced PING sensors checks the availability and uptime of network devices, and packet capture and NetFlow can be used for advanced bandwidth utilization, router, and switch monitoring.
