Monitoring as a Service: FAQ


What is Monitoring as a Service?

Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) is a cloud-based solution – such as PRTG Hosted Monitor – that provides businesses with tools to monitor their IT infrastructure, applications, and services. It enables organizations to track the performance, availability, and security of their systems in real-time through a web-based interface. MaaS offers features such as automated alerts, reporting, and analytics, which help identify and resolve issues promptly.

What are the benefits of Monitoring as a Service?

The benefits of Monitoring as a Service include:

  • Cost efficiency: MaaS reduces the need for significant upfront investment in monitoring infrastructure and software, as it operates on a subscription or pay-as-you-go model.
  • Scalability: It can easily scale to accommodate the growing needs of an organization, adjusting to varying levels of demand without requiring additional hardware or software.
  • 24/7 monitoring: MaaS providers typically offer around-the-clock monitoring, ensuring that systems are continuously monitored and issues are detected and addressed promptly.
  • Expertise and support: Leveraging the expertise of specialized Monitoring as a Service providers, businesses benefit from advanced monitoring tools and knowledgeable support without needing to maintain such expertise in-house.
  • Enhanced focus: By outsourcing monitoring tasks, organizations can focus more on their core business activities and strategic initiatives, rather than managing complex IT monitoring processes.

What is the MaaS product of the PRTG product family?

PRTG Hosted Monitor is Paessler’s hosted monitoring software for cloud and hybrid IT infrastructures. With it, you get an overview of your entire IT infrastructure in one central monitoring tool. Your PRTG instance is hosted on AWS servers in the region of your choice.

Is there also an on-premises PRTG product?

Yes, there is. PRTG Network Monitor is Paessler’s on-premises product for monitoring your entire IT infrastructure. For very large environments, PRTG Enterprise Monitor is the on-premises monitoring tool to choose.

What is a sensor in PRTG?

In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, for example the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, or the free space on a disk drive.

On average, you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.


PRTG the multi-tool

PRTG: The multi-tool for sysadmins

Adapt PRTG individually and dynamically to your needs and rely on a strong API:

  • HTTP API: Access monitoring data and manipulate monitoring objects via HTTP requests
  • Custom sensors: Create your own PRTG sensors for customized monitoring
  • Custom notifications: Create your own notifications and send action triggers to external systems
  • REST Custom sensor: Monitor almost everything that provides data in XML or JSON format
