Solution description


PRTG monitors the whole IT infrastructure 24/7 and alerts you to problems before users even notice. Using all common methods and protocols, as well as a powerful API, PRTG can integrate with all aspects of your business critical infrastructure.

Scrutinizer provides network traffic analytics and contextual forensic insight to the traffic flowing across your network, allowing you to monitor, visualize, and report on every network conversation.

Using flow technologies such as NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow, J-Flow and others, Scrutinizer is able to collect, archive, and quickly retrieve the traffic details you need to investigate both network and security incidents.

Combining PRTG with Scrutinizer ensures that you will be informed about every issue, whether it’s a serious failure or just the first hint of upcoming problems.

With this information, you can then perform forensic investigation to identify root cause, supporting fast and efficient incident response.

Integrating Scrutinizer with PRTG brings together the best of general IT monitoring and in-depth flow analysis to ensure maximum uptime for your infrastructure.

For Paessler and Plixer Customers this means:

  • Combine comprehensive monitoring with in-depth forensic analysis
  • Gain better insight for rapid troubleshooting of application performance problems
  • Achieve faster incident response for network and security events
  • Run historical reports, going back in time to investigate any network conversation or transaction
