  • SNMP
  • Flow protocols (NetFlow, jFlow, sFlow, and IPFIX)
  • Packet sniffing
  • WMI and Windows performance counters
  • HTTP requests
  • SSH for Linux and macOS systems
  • REST APIs for XML and JSON
  • Ping, SQL, and much more

Monitor your entire network

PRTG monitors servers, virtual machines, and important hardware, as well as many other network components. Among other things, it keeps a constant eye on the load times of your websites, the available storage space on your NAS systems, and the quality of your VoIP. PRTG comes with more than 250 preconfigured sensors, allowing you to set up and get started with your monitoring in no time.


Free mobile apps

PRTG apps let you monitor your network while on the go. They run on smartphones and tablets with an iOS or Android operating system. Push notifications can be sent directly to your smartphone in the event of warning messages or errors in your network. With Auvik, you can only monitor by way of the web interface.
