What is Monitoring as a Service (MaaS)?

Monitoring as a Service (MaaS)

Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) lets you implement a monitoring application online. We host the monitoring software for you, which means you won’t have to install it on the computers in your network. Another advantage: you no longer have to bother with maintenance and updates.

Tailor-made packages available on a month-to-month basis

As with Software as a Service (SaaS), the only thing you’ll need is an Internet connection, which means you can free up resources (such as servers) that were once used to run your monitoring software. Our packages can be customized and renewed on a month-to-month basis, allowing you to enjoy the utmost in flexibility, and to only pay for that which you really require.

iWhat is a sensor?

In PRTG, “Sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.

The "hosted for you” version of PRTG lets you get started with network monitoring at once – without having to set up a server or endure lengthy configuration processes.

To the review 


Preconfigured sensors

With the hosted version of PRTG, you can, of course, take advantage of the full range of preconfigured PRTG sensors. This makes it easy to monitor all the main aspects of your network, such as hardware, software, traffic, and performance. The PRTG Auto Discovery feature automatically detects network devices and integrates them into your monitoring. As a result, you can forgo having to add individual checkpoints manually.


Easy-to-read display

PRTG presents all network monitoring information on easy-to-read dashboards. Feel free to customize these dashboards to meet your own specific needs. By doing so, you'll keep a constant eye on all the key values of your network, and ensure that everything is running smoothly.



Finally, the PRTG Map Editor lets you create network charts in a matter of seconds.



Customizable notification system

When it comes to your network, you need to be updated at once – especially if your website is down, your virtual machines are overloaded, or the network’s hard drives are nearing full capacity. PRTG constantly monitors your entire network and notifies you as soon as any of your predefined threshold values are exceeded. You get to choose how you’d like to be alerted, whether it be by email, SMS, or push notification.

“Hey Dirk, what do you think about network monitoring?”

“Without network monitoring, it can easily take several hours to locate a network error, such as identifying a router which isn't working properly. Costs can quickly pile up due to unused man days. With a monitoring service, the amount of downtime can be minimized and in many cases even proactively eliminated. With our PRTG monitoring tool, we hope to simplify the job of administrators so they can go about their work efficiently and with less stress.”

Dirk Paessler, founder of Paessler AG

PRTG features a variety of alert types: E-mail, Pager, Apps, running an external application, etc. You can specify when and how each person is to be informed about network issues. To do so, you can add contacts and edit, delete, or pause your notifications at any time.



The notification system is built into the hosted monitoring software and is available at no extra charge. Because of its integrated quality, configuring the alert feature is done in just a few clicks.
