PRTG Manual: Ajax Web Interface—Device and Sensor Setup
The Ajax-based web interface is your access to PRTG. Use it to configure devices and sensors, to set up notifications, as well as to review monitoring results, and to create reports. This web interface is highly interactive and uses Asynchronous Java Script and XML (AJAX) to deliver a powerful and easy-to-use user experience. While you are logged in, the PRTG web interface continuously refreshes the data on the screen (via Ajax calls) so it always shows the current monitoring results (you can set refresh interval and method individually).
Because the web interface works as a Single Page Application (SPA), you rarely see a full page refresh to avoid a performance impact due to redundant processing. Only single page elements are refreshed when necessary. The AJAX web interface shows all object setting dialogs as pop-up layers, so you never lose the current context. This speeds up the user experience appreciably and makes the configuration of objects in PRTG comprehensible. The responsive design of the web interface ensures that it always adjusts to the size of your screen so that you see more information at a glance.
