NGINX Monitoring with PRTG

PRTG Network Monitor provides out-of-the-box monitoring for IIS (Internet Information Services) and Apache web servers.

Monitoring a NGINX web server is done with one simple maneuver: using our PowerShell script, which you can embed into PRTG as an EXE/Script Advanced sensor. You will find exact instructions on the script’s download page:

However, a website’s success cannot be ensured by the monitoring of an NGINX web server alone. Many other factors affect the experience a user has when visiting a website.

It is therefore important to take several of these elements into account when choosing a NGINX monitoring solution:

  • First of all, software must include all of the functions necessary for the direct monitoring of the website or web server (in particular, the "big three," or Microsoft Internet Information Services, Apache, and NGINX).
  • Additionally, the software must be able to monitor the entire infrastructure involved in the publication process.
  • General functions such as those for flexibility and usability are also crucial and provide a significant basis for the successful use of the software.
  • Last but not least, prices and licensing of course play a major role in the decision-making process.

PRTG’s full range of features and functions work together as one. Get started with PRTG NGINX monitoring today.
