PRTG Manual: Available Licenses

Our licenses count by sensors. We define one sensor as one aspect that you monitor on a device.

There are three different PRTG flavors available.

Freeware Edition

The Freeware Edition is a good solution to get started with PRTG or for private use:

  • Free for personal and commercial use.
  • Can monitor up to 100 sensors.
  • Supports all available sensor types.

icon-toolsIf you want to use the Freeware Edition, please first install the Trial Edition and get a free trial key. After the trial period has ended, your Trial Edition automatically turns into a Freeware Edition.

Trial Edition

The Trial Edition is intended for evaluation purposes for customers who are interested in purchasing commercial licenses:

  • Can monitor an unlimited number of sensors.
  • Supports all available sensor types.
  • For PRTG on premises you have to request the temporary license key from our website. Usually you see the license details including the key if you click the free download button on paessler.com
  • The trial period of PRTG on premises is limited to 30 days and automatically reverts to Freeware Edition afterwards.
  • PRTG in the cloud provides a 10 days trial. Afterwards, your instance will be deleted if you do not purchase a commercial edition.
  • Each PRTG on premises license includes one single failover cluster setup, consisting of two nodes. Cluster installations with two and three failover nodes will require one additional trial license key. A cluster installation with four failover nodes will require two additional trial license keys.

After the trial period has ended, a PRTG on premises Trial Edition automatically turns into a Freeware Edition, allowing you to monitor up to 100 sensors for free.

Commercial Editions

There are several licenses of PRTG Network Monitor available to suit the demands of smaller as well as larger customers and organizations:

  • Can monitor a maximum number of sensors (please consider our recommendations).
  • Supports all available sensor types.
  • Each PRTG on premises license includes one single failover cluster setup, consisting of two nodes. Cluster installations with two and three failover nodes will require one additional license of the same size. A cluster installation with four failover nodes will require two additional licenses of the same size.
