Monitoring by Paessler PRTG
To ensure excellent performance and uninterrupted operation of a data center, it is essential to monitor a whole range of different components.

Visualization via real-time overview maps with live status information ensures that everything is always in view and you can act quickly if necessary.
More than 250 predefined native sensors cover all fields of application necessary to monitor a data center. By using PRTG remote probes, multiple networks at different locations and standalone networks within the enterprise can be monitored. The reporting feature allows you to view and analyze historical monitoring results for a specific time period or for your system configuration. You can create reports for all sensors or only for specific sensors.
