PRTG Manual: Add Remote Probe
Why are remote probes helpful for monitoring with PRTG? Because you can extend your monitoring.
- Remote probes allow you to monitor different sub-networks that are separated by a firewall from your PRTG on premises core server and to keep an eye on remote locations. You can install one or more remote probes.
- Remote probes are useful if you want to distribute monitoring load by taking it from the system running the PRTG core server and putting it on one or more remote probe machines.
- You will need a remote probe if you want to monitor your local network using a PRTG in the cloud instance.
- Remote probes may be suitable monitoring components in several individual scenarios that depend on your custom network setup.
