PRTG's comprehensive functionality is supported by numerous methods of network data acquisition:

  • SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation): used to gather bandwidth usage and performance data for all systems within your network, including port-by-port usage data for switches and routers.
  • Packet Sniffing (Port sniffer): used to inspect all network data packets travelling in your wireless network to calculate used bandwidth.
  • NetFlow Monitoring: Netflow is supported by most Cisco routers to measure bandwidth usage. It is the most powerful monitoring method, suitable for high traffic networks.

PRTG Network Monitor runs continuously on a Windows-based machine within your network, recording network usage parameters.  The easy to use web-based interface allows to you to configure the devices and sensors that you want to monitor.

PRTG's comprehensive reporting features are highly customizable and can be defined for any time span for wireless router troubleshooting.

IT Professionals at thousands of companies around the world use PRTG Network Monitor software to efficiently manage their networks and for wireless network troubleshooting. Here is what one of them said about PRTG:

"Did I thank you for the great service? I'm running networks on several locations, and PRTG is by far the best monitor application I've tried after trying a lot of demo/freeware versions. And with such good support, I see no reason why I shouldn't keep deploying PRTG to my customers.", Lasse Ruud, www.ruudware.no

PRTG Network Monitor is available in two editions. For basic, free bandwidth monitoring functionality, the Freeware Edition may be downloaded and used for personal and commercial use completely free of charge.
