Windows Vista Network Troubleshooting
Managing a Windows Vista Network with PRTG
PRTG Network Monitor provides in-depth, real time data, which greatly simplifies network troubleshooting for Vista and other Windows versions.
Businesses increasingly rely on their networks to move data, provide communication, and enable basic operations. Network downtime, no matter how brief, can provide a serious threat to efficiency, reputation and the bottom line. In today's hyper-competitive business environment, companies simply cannot afford for their networks to go down. PRTG's 24/7 real time network monitoring enables you to identify potential issues and perform in-depth Vista Network Troubleshooting to resolve the situation before a problem arises.
PRTG's comprehensive windows server monitor and windows vista network troubleshooting functionality is supported by numerous methods of network data acquisition:
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation): used to gather bandwidth usage and performance data for all systems within your network, including port-by-port usage data for switches and routers.
Packet Sniffing: used to inspect all network data packets travelling in your LAN or WLAN to calculate the bandwidth usage.
NetFlow: supported by most Cisco routers to measure bandwidth usage. It is the most powerful monitoring method, suitable for high traffic networks.
PRTG LAN Monitor runs continuously on a Windows-based machine within your network, recording network usage parameters. The easy to use web-based interface allows to you to configure the devices and sensors that you want to monitor.
PRTG's comprehensive reporting features are highly customizable and can be defined for any time span.
PRTG Network Monitor works with any version of Microsoft® Windows (XP or later, server or workstation, 32 or 64 bit.)
IT Professionals at thousands of companies around the world use PRTG Network Monitor software to efficiently manage their networks:
"Did I thank you for the great service? I'm running networks on several locations, and PRTG is by far the best monitor application I've tried after trying a lot of demo/freeware versions. And with such good support, I see no reason why I shouldn't keep deploying PRTG to my customers.", Lasse Ruud, www.ruudware.no
PRTG is available in two editions. For basic, free bandwidth traffic tracking functionality, the Freeware Edition may be downloaded and used for personal and commercial use completely free of charge. Need more sensors to monitor a larger IT infrastructure? See our commercial licenses here.
