Flawless Linux network monitoring
with PRTG

 

As a medium-sized company, you need a central network management. Most important work processes run via the in-house network, which can run via a Windows or Linux server. The job of administrators is to ensure smooth operation and cost-effective utilization. Professional monitoring software such as PRTG can help.

PRTG is not only compatible with Windows systems, but also with networks running via Linux servers. With Linux monitoring, you get an overview of the system and device status, as well as updates on traffic strength and potential bottlenecks. You also get important information on users, connections, and your network structure.

Thanks to PRTG’s built-in Linux server monitoring, well-founded decisions can be made on the future development and optimization of your service management. Linux monitoring also lets you monitor the amount of free disk space, allowing you to quickly fix memory errors. Moreover, PRTG features time synchronization monitoring (via NTP).

With PRTG, admins obtain an overview of their Linux networks, employees enjoy a stable working environment, and managers are given figures they can trust. Improve the performance of your network and solve problems before they arise.

Thanks to PRTG, everyone will work with peace of mind.

This is how Linux monitoring with PRTG works

 

PRTG uses customized Linux and Unix sensors to monitor Linux systems, without the need to install or modify anything on the target device. Linux operating systems are monitored by way of SNMP and SSH protocols, while Linux servers are monitored using WBEM and SSH protocols. With SSH, data is sent via a secure connection to prevent sensitive information from being compromised during the sending of monitoring data.

Customize your own threshold and alarm values. These values are used to inform you if memory surges on one or more servers. Such information is especially important for application and terminal servers which are used by a great many users. Even standard applications such as word processors or spreadsheets can take up so much system memory that overall system performance is impaired. PRTG notifies you before memory bottlenecks occur, enabling your network to perform optimally in the long run.

PRTG’s Linux monitoring also lets you monitor the available hard disk space of Linux systems and time synchronization via NTP (Network Time Protocol). PRTG for Linux servers gathers information on system load, RAM, and hard drives directly from the respective systems. 

7 good reasons
to choose PRTG
as your Linux
monitoring tool

 

 

Gain an overview

The PRTG dashboard provides for a convenient overview of the status and performance of your Linux network, over- and undercapacities, NTP, hard drives, and memory.

Be notified

If a bandwidth overload is looming or another threshold value exceeded, you’ll be notified at once, wherever you happen to be.

The data collected by PRTG

 

  • Load Average Sensor: Monitors the "load average” of a Linux/Unix system by way of Secure Shell (SSH) or the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
  • Meminfo Sensor: Uses SSH or SNMP to monitor available RAM (total and proportional).
  • Disk Free Sensor: Monitors available hard disk space for Linux. This sensor uses SSH or SNMP to display the total free disk space as a sum and as a percentage for each mounted partition (data carrier).
  • SNMP Traffic Sensor: Uses Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to monitor the traffic of a device.
  • WBEM Custom: Performs custom queries via WBEM.
  • Time synchronization monitoring via NTP (Network Time Protocol).

PRTG:
The Swiss Army Knife for Admins

 

Adapt PRTG individually and dynamically to your needs relying on a strong API:

  • HTTP API: Access monitoring data and manipulate monitoring objects using HTTP requests
  • Custom Sensors: Create your own sensors for customized monitoring
  • Custom Notifications: Create your own notifications to send alarms to external systems
