Why Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor is the perfect alternative to DX Spectrum


All-in-one monitoring solution vs. one separate installation for each functionality

The challenge 

Monitoring large and complex infrastructures also means that the number of metrics you need to keep an eye on is nearly unlimited. Hardware parameters, bandwidth, network traffic, availability, performance, the use of different technologies and protocols – you name it.

This also means that if you need to buy different products out of a software bundle to get different monitoring features, or you need one server installation for each monitoring functionality as is the case with DX Spectrum as part of DX NetOps, costs will quickly rise to tens of thousands of dollars.

The solution: PRTG Enterprise Monitor 

PRTG Enterprise Monitor is your all-in-one monitoring solution for large infrastructures. With our tool, you get exactly what you pay for.

  • Get the full range of monitoring features, alerting, visualization & reporting included with every subscription license
  • Avoid expensive software bundles or complex server installations for various monitoring needs
  • Centrally monitor and manage an unlimited number of distributed locations – your own or your customers’ infrastructures – at no extra cost

Correlation of IT infrastructure & business layer vs. simple event correlation

The challenge 

IT systems in companies are complex, dynamic, and need to consolidate many layers – from physical hardware to software applications and virtual environments to the integration of on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments.

However, this is only the IT infrastructure layer. To get a comprehensive overview of all your systems, you need a monitoring solution that also keeps a close eye on your business services and processes.

This way, you can not only benefit from event correlation in your IT infrastructure as with DX Spectrum, but also correlate IT infrastructure and business service events and alarms.

The solution: PRTG Enterprise Monitor 

PRTG Enterprise Monitor includes ITOps Board, a powerful feature to enhance your monitoring setup with a centralized, business service-oriented overview across multiple PRTG servers.

  • Create dependency diagrams and dashboards for all business processes that you want to monitor with just a few clicks
  • Gather alerts and notifications from all your PRTG servers, automatically correlate them by business service, and prioritize them to reduce alert noise
  • Define SLOs for each business service and view automatically calculated SLA performance and availability metrics to prevent SLA breaches
