Why Network Monitoring is Critical

Network Monitoring is essential for companies of any size. The right monitoring tool not only ensures that you are notified when outages occur, but also increases network efficiency by tracking bandwidth and resource consumption.

Network monitoring offers the following main benefits:

  • Reduced inefficiency & downtime: no more undetected system failures
  • Improved customer satisfaction through a quicker and more reliable system
  • Peace of mind: As long as you do not hear from the monitoring tool you know your systems are running perfectly

Greater Efficiency Through Better Monitoring

Software for usage and activity monitoring is the key to:

  • Avoiding bandwidth and performance bottlenecks
  • Identifying applications or servers using up your bandwidth
  • Instantly identifying sudden spikes caused by malicious code
  • Reducing costs by buying hardware and bandwidth according to requirements

Checklist: the Ideal Network Monitoring Solution

Good network management software should be easy to install and use. Other requirements are as follows:

  • Remote Management - via web browser, PocketPC, or any Windows client
  • Outage Notification - by email, ICQ, SMS, pager and more
  • Comprehensive sensor selection
  • Multiple location monitoring
  • Full support for common network usage data acquisition - SNMP, Packet Sniffing, NetFlow and more

Assure Performance and Availability of Your Network

Network monitoring is an important instrument to assure the performance and availability of your servers and your entire network. An efficient memory monitor tool also helps you to optimize hardware and bandwidth according to your real needs by delivering an analysis of long term monitoring data. PRTG Network Monitor is a comprehensive monitoring solution that checks bandwidth and monitors network usage, performance and availability.

Improve and Monitor the Performance of Your Network and Servers


The network monitoring tool monitors bandwidth utilization via SNMP, packet sniffing and NetFlow, checks the availability of network components, and checks parameters such as CPU load, memory load, free disk space, etc. It can also be used for server room monitoring as PRTG can even check of the temperature or humidity in your server room and trigger an alert if a certain threshold is being passed.

In order to make server performance monitoring easier, PRTG comes with a range of built in server monitoring sensors:


  • Email sensors check the availability of your email services

  • File server sensors check free disk space, existence of files, changes to a file, etc.
  • Virtual server sensors (e.g. ESX monitor, hyper-v monitor) make monitoring virtualized environments easier

Continuous network and server monitoring enables you to find problems and respond to them before they become a serious threat to your business. Our software helps your business to perform better:

  • Avoid network performance bottlenecks
  • Deliver better quality of service to your users by being proactive
  • Reduce costs by buying bandwidth and hardware according to your real needs
  • Maximize profits by avoiding losses caused by undetected system failures
