Network Scanning Tools

Scan Your Network With PRTG's Network Scanning Tools


PRTG is Paessler's powerful network monitor. The network scanning tools track bandwidth traffic, monitor web server performance, and give you a complete overview of your network.

Today most businesses depend on their IT-infrastructure. Network failures or performance bottlenecks can therefore cause serious problems for the entire business. Comprehensive monitoring of all devices and of the network traffic assures the network's availability and performance: if something unexpected happens, the IT-staff is immediately alerted, so that they can act on time and solve the issue before it causes heavy losses. With PRTG's network monitor tool Paessler offers a Windows server monitor which is perfect for monitoring your windows servers and your entire network 24/7.

Website Monitoring

PRTG is also an affordable, powerful web site monitoring tool that enables you to scan and control your web site's resources. Businesses using the internet to sell or market products lose money whenever their website goes down. Even if your website is just meant to present your company to the outside world, frequent downtimes or long response times will damage your image and prevent people from contacting you.

Database Monitoring

Electronic businesses rely on information stored in databases. It is vital for companies to be able to constantly access and monitor database performance information. This makes it important for system administrators to know the status of their databases. PRTG's SQL server monitor allows database monitoring and automated alerts for the most common types of SQL servers.

Usage Monitoring

Last but not least with PRTG you will have access to bandwidth and network usage monitoring data that will help improve the performance and efficiency of your network. Understanding bandwidth and resource consumption is essential for better network performance management.
