How to Set up PRTG Network Monitor

With the various infrastructures in use today it can sometimes be difficult to decide which monitoring technology is right to solve your problem. The easiest way to configure network monitoring is to use PRTG's autodiscovery. PRTG then scans your network for devices in a given IP range and configures suitable sensor types based on device templates, such as MS Exchange or SQL Server.

And of course you can add or change sensors manually, too.

You can find detailed setup instructions in our knowledge base and the manual.
