Works securely and reliably with IBM hard disks and servers
Company operations are highly dependent on a functional IT. When IBM hard disks and servers crash, work inevitably comes to a halt. With our IBM Monitoring, you can monitor several IBM devices and servers centrally and thereby minimize crashes and disturbances.
Four IBM sensors check the status of all logical and virtual disks as well as memory modules in IBM servers. You can also monitor the system health of IBM devices: fan performance, ambient and CPU temperature, humidity, voltage, and power supply status. By doing so, you'll ensure your IBM devices continue to deliver the performance your company needs.
Thanks to PRTG, the entire staff can work with peace of mind.
3 good reasons to choose PRTG as your IBM monitoring tool
Get all IBM hard disks and servers at a glance and automatic alerts when threshold values are exceeded.
By spotting errors quickly, work process are interrupted less frequently and productivity soars.
This is how Network and IBM Monitoring with PRTG works
IBM monitoring is based on the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The four IBM sensors use lookups to determine
the status values of one or more sensor channels. The possible status values are defined in a lookup file.
PRTG makes your job easier
Our monitoring software frees you to focus on other tasks by promptly notifying you of potential issues.
PRTG gives you one central monitoring tool for your servers and entire network. Enjoy a quick overview of your whole infrastructure via our dashboard and app.
Getting started with PRTG is a breeze. Setting up or switching from another network monitoring tool is easy thanks to the auto-discovery and pre-configured device templates.
Your IBM devices at a glance – even on the go

What kind of data is gathered?
How PRTG defines sensors
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
Your IBM data is gathered by sensors in PRTG.
These four IBM-specific sensors are already incorporated into PRTG:
- SNMP IBM System X Logical Disk Sensor
- SNMP IBM System X Physical Disk Sensor
- SNMP IBM System X Physical Memory Sensor
- SNMP IBM System X System Health Sensor
Of course, thanks to its powerful API, PRTG also provides you with every possibility to create your own personalized sensors so you can monitor absolutely anything you please.
