How Does PRTG Monitor Network Activity?

PRTG network traffic monitor tracks bandwidth utilization using NetFlow and packet sniffing. This way, you can determine your overall bandwidth usage as well as which protocol, IP address or port is accountable for most bandwidth consumption. Thanks to remote probes, PRTG is not only a NetFlow monitor, but also can be used as a SNMP tool.

Advantages of Monitoring Network Activity

Using network monitoring software is vital for network administrators, as it gives you a complete overview of your network and alerts you if something needssses caused by downtimes. The PRTG free network sniffer can also be used as performance test software, as a Network Activity Indicator it indicates the loads that your network devices are subject to at normal and peak times.

PRTG network monitor tools support the NetFlow protocol, which shows detailed NetFlow traffic data for many Cisco switches and routers. The software can also be used as VoIP monitoring tool and as a network audit tool.

PRTG Network Monitor

PRTG is available in two editions. For basic, free network activity and remote server monitoring, the Freeware Edition may be downloaded and used for personal and commercial use completely free of charge. Need more sensors to monitor a larger IT infrastructure? See our commercial licenses here.

When you monitor network activity, you will know if the load on one of your servers is getting too high, if you need to buy more bandwidth, or if an application uses too many resources before problems or outages occur. This enables you to take a much more proactive approach to troubleshooting and avoid economic loss.
