Alternative to MRTG

PRTG is a Great Alternative to MRTG

MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) is a tool that monitors traffic on a network connection. Although useful, MRTG has its limitations. Many of its users have switched to PRTG Network Monitor - the innovative and user-friendly network and bandwidth monitoring tool.

Often described as MRTG for Windows, PRTG Network Monitor makes network monitoring easy. The software works with (almost) all SNMP enabled devices, such as managed switches, routers and firewalls. It can also monitor services and systems using various other protocols such as WMI, SMTP, HTTP, etc. PRTG is remarkably easy to install on Windows 7 and newer versions. Monitoring is both simple and intuitive, and can be done via a web based front end, a Windows application, or mobile devices. Data retrieval and configuration is easy, and the fully skinnable web interface makes it easy to customize reports to suit your business.

We think that PRTG is the ideal Windows alternative to MRTG - and we're not alone. Here are some of the comments we've received from satisfied customers.

  • "We just purchased PRTG and think its fantastic and better than MRTG (not to mention it can be installed by a monkey)", Matt Brown, Data Sanctuary Internet Backup
  • "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.", Jeppe Jessen,
  • "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.", Simon Jones,
  • "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." Eugene van der Merwe,
