What is MRTG?
MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) is a tool that monitors traffic on a network connections mainly using SNMP. Although useful, MRTG has its limitations, especially the complex installation on Linux systems. Many of its users have now discovered PRTG Network Monitor, an innovative and user-friendly network and bandwidth monitoring tool.
PRTG – MRTG for Windows
Often described as MRTG for Windows, PRTG makes bandwidth monitoring easy. The products work with SNMP enabled devices, such as managed switches, routers and firewalls. Also WMI enabled Windows systems can be monitored as well as many other protocols. PRTG is remarkably easy to install on Windows (see here for the required Windows version). Monitoring is both simple and intuitive, and can be done via an interactive web based front end. Data retrieval and configuration is easy, and the fully skinnable web interface makes it easy to customize reports to suit your business.

Here are some of the comments we have received from satisfied customers
We think that PRTG is the ideal Windows alternative to MRTG – and we are not alone

"We just purchased PRTG and think its a fantastic SNMP tool and better than MRTG (not to mention it can be installed by a monkey)"
Simon Jones, www.talk-101.com
"We have purchased the PRTG software which I must say was a very easy product for us to install and has put our own MRTG installations to shame! A very good product."

"I really think that you guys have made a damn good program here, and I have never regretted buying it from you. For the past 3 years I have been using MRTG and ever since I started using it I have been searching for a program like this one. So 3 words for your team, DAMN GOOD JOB."

"I am an avid supporter of PRTG and I would like to congratulate you on this most excellent product which really works very well and is very easy to use. You have identified a gap in the market for easy "MRTG"-style traffic management, and I have to say without your product I would certainly be lost. I stumbled upon PRTG in Google whilst again looking for an easy to use "MRTG"-style traffic graphing and immediately bought it. I have also encouraged my partners to purchase the application. My business is a Internet Service Provider and we also have a Wireless Internet Service Provider Division. I use PRTG to monitor all my critical links."
