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
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 and all-in-one
PRTG is much more than just a CPU monitoring tool. The software comes with all the features you'll need for comprehensive network monitoring. No plug-ins, add-ons, or expensive upgrades – you get everything at one low price!
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!

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!”

5-star monitoring software
PRTG regularly tops independent tests when compared with other network monitoring tools. Magazines like ITPro, PCMag.com, and Techradar confirm the quality and user-friendliness of PRTG, as do the thousands of 5-star reviews on Trustpilot, Gartner, and Capterra.
“Businesses that want to monitor everything on their network without having to worry about extra costs or unsupported devices will find Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor a fine choice. It dishes out sensors a bit more liberally than you’ll probably want, but these can be easily moved to where they’re needed, resulting in a monitoring solution that’s not only highly capable but good value.”
