The importance of CPU monitoring



CPU usage affects the performance of your servers

CPUs are probably the most important components in many of your network devices. An overloaded CPU in a server, router, or switch can bring your entire network to its knees. If your company is like the majority of businesses these days, then you rely heavily on your website. To perform well, your web server must therefore not be bogged down by its CPU.

CPU monitoring with PRTG prevents costly downtime

An overloaded CPU in a server can slow down your website or even make it go offline. This inevitably leads to a drop in sales for your company. What’s more, an overloaded CPU can seriously impair the productivity of many of the key devices in your corporate network.

With PRTG, a quick glance is all it takes to make sure a CPU load and temperature are in the normal range. If a CPU load becomes critical, PRTG immediately sounds the alarm so you can take action at once. And if a fan breaks down, you can quickly go about finding a replacement.

This helps you stop crashes in their tracks!

The advantages of CPU monitoring with PRTG

Comprehensive monitoring
of all CPUs

PRTG monitors the CPU load and temperature of all your network devices (servers, network computers, routers, switches, etc.) around the clock. You can monitor with protocols such as WMI, NetFlow, and SNMP. Preconfigured sensors (monitoring elements with multiple measurement points) make it easy to set up your CPU monitoring environment.

Proactive (instead of passive) monitoring

If the CPU load of a server is slowly reaching a critical level, PRTG sounds the alarm so you can upgrade the server before bottlenecks arise. And if a processor with a defective fan is about to overheat, you'll be notified at once so you can replace the fan before a crash occurs or the processor is damaged.

Powerful monitoring

PRTG is much more than just a CPU monitoring tool. The software comes with all the features you'll need for comprehensive network monitoring. 

Outstanding usability

IT infrastructures are often complex and confusing. PRTG is designed with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface so you can rediscover the joys of being a sysadmin!

A sneak peek at CPU checks with PRTG

Practical tip: “Hey Stephan, what would you tell administrators looking to set up CPU monitoring with PRTG?”

“The SNMP CPU Load Sensor is a great way to get a handy overview of the load on all of a host’s CPU cores with just one sensor. Of course, this sensor also displays the total CPU load, which means you can always tell right away if one of your server’s processors is about to reach its load limit!”

Stephan Linke, technical support at Paessler AG
