The availability of all Windows servers and their services is essential

An application only functions properly if all underlying servers are running error-free. For applications based on a database (e. g. Microsoft SharePoint), full availability of all components must be guaranteed.

One single service failing to start may be responsible for the complete failure of an application on a client. With PRTG, you have an immediate overview of all Windows servers in your network and can react fast in case of an emergency.

WMI Service Monitor

With PRTG, you not only have an overview of the general availability of your Microsoft servers but you can also monitor each individual service. A service is not running? With the PRTG WMI Service sensor they can even be started automatically!

Dependencies on servers, applications or services can also be configured individually. Application servers that are based on database servers often react sensitively if the database or even the entire server are no longer accessible.

In case you use Microsoft 365: Our new PRTG sensor types Microsoft 365 Service Status and Microsoft 365 Service Status Advanced monitor the overall and detailed status of all services of a Microsoft 365 subscription.

Why a Microsoft network should be monitored

More than ever it is important for companies to operate a functioning IT infrastructure. Even short system failures can result in high financial costs.

Especially in homogeneous networks such as Microsoft networks, it is important to guarantee the communication of hardware, applications, and services, and to ensure the availability of those three components. With PRTG, IT administrators can be certain that they have a complete overview of all systems. Therefore, admins can act before an imminent failure instead of reacting afterwards.

The following illustration shows a possible dependency between Skype, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL and Active Directory:
