Network Monitoring for Windows - Monitor CPU Usage
PRTG Network Monitor is Paessler's powerful system load monitor. The software monitors network devices, tracks bandwidth usage, and monitors load, for example CPU, processor und RAM load (including monitoring Linux system load average), and helps you to monitor log files and events.
HOW DOES PRTG MONITOR RAM AND CPU LOAD?
Using WMI and SNMP, PRTG shows you server CPU load and memory load. The software can also monitor server CPU temperature if your computer's main board supplies the appropriate MIB files. If the CPU load exceeds a defined threshold, PRTG's notification system immediately informs you via text message, email, etc., and allows you to react quickly. In order to avoid server overloads, you should configure alarms to warn you if the CPU load rises above a certain threshold for a certain amount of time, e.g. if it is higher than 75% for more than 10 minutes.
Monitoring CPU load is important for all kinds of servers, as high CPU loads can considerably slow down response times. Staying on top of CPU usage helps you to make your website faster and therefore more attractive for visitors. For file and application servers, it is important to monitor server CPU in order to ensure your company's productivity. Putting too much load on your servers does not only slow down your system, but can also increase the risk of server failures. It is therefore vital to constantly monitor load in order to ensure network availability.
- Processor and CPU Load monitor: the tool for monitoring load includes several counters that show you your current processor load, as well as historic data. In order to avoid server overloads, you should configure alarms to warn you if the CPU load rises above a certain threshold for a certain amount of time, e.g. if it is higher than 70% for more than 10 minutes.
- RAM Load Monitor: PRTG Network Monitor is a comprehensive network monitoring solution which enables you to monitor hardware, bandwidth, and network performance. The software supports agentless monitoring: it gathers the data from network devices using a variety of protocols, such as SNMP, WMI, NetFlow or sFlow.
The tool for monitoring load includes powerful server monitoring tools, for example VMware management tools and tools for Microsoft server monitoring. The software also helps you to monitor uptime and can be used as a hyper v monitor.
