PRTG Manual: Device and Sensor Setup

The PRTG web interface is your access to PRTG via a web browser. The PRTG web interface is based on Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX). It uses a responsive design to adjust to the size of your screen.

Use the PRTG web interface as the default interface to set up your monitoring. You can use it to configure devices and sensors, to set up notifications, to review monitoring results, to create reports, and to visualize your monitoring on dashboards.

While you are logged in, the PRTG web interface continuously refreshes the data on the screen via AJAX calls. This way, you are always up to date regarding monitoring results. You can individually set the refresh interval and method.

Because of the Single Page Application (SPA) technology, your system stays highly performant because only single page elements are refreshed when necessary.

The following sections introduce how to set up devices and sensors in the PRTG web interface.
