PRTG Enterprise Monitor vs. SolarWinds
All-in-one monitoring software instead of a mishmash of tools
Company IT systems and infrastructures are complex and multilayered. Sysadmins need an overview of many important components and values such as virtual environments, hardware, network devices (e.g. routers and switches), cloud systems, and storage space.
Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor is a comprehensive, all-in-one monitoring tool for your entire network. With SolarWinds, you have to choose between individual functions or purchase several modules to access the full range of features. Add-ons for features such as flow or server monitoring can quickly drive up costs and make it difficult to decide upon the right monitoring solution.
Monitoring of distributed sites at no extra cost
With PRTG Enterprise Monitor, you can install remote probes (equivalent to "polling engines" at SolarWinds) at any number of sites and then monitor them centrally with one instance of PRTG. Each license of PRTG Enterprise Monitor includes an unlimited number of remote probes, whereas with SolarWinds products, an additional polling engine costs around $20,000.
How PRTG defines sensors
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
Full range of monitoring features with every PRTG Enterprise Monitor license
Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor license costs are based on the number of required sensors and the duration of the subscription. The longer the subscription, the lower the annual cost. Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor can be upgraded – without having to change licenses – in the event that your monitoring or IT needs evolve.
And you’ll never have to worry about which functions are worth the extra money as every Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor license comes with the full range of monitoring features.
- Full range of monitoring features with every license
- No more expensive and time-consuming software bundles
- Simple and flexible licensing model
Save money with PRTG Enterprise Monitor
With SolarWinds, many of the features are subject to a surcharge. This makes creating software bundles anything but easy. If your monitoring needs change or you want to incorporate a new function, you’ll likely have to purchase a whole new module. PRTG Enterprise Monitor is different: Each license comes with the full range of monitoring functions, as well as continual access to all new updates and features.
At most companies, network administrators are extremely busy. A complicated monitoring tool can make their lives even more difficult.
Our goal is therefore to make PRTG as simple and user-friendly as possible. If our customer feedback is any indication, then our hard work is paying off.
PRTG Enterprise Monitor is designed with an intuitive user interface and easy-to-read charts and statistics to keep the time you spend monitoring to a minimum. A quick glance at your monitoring dashboard is all it takes to see if everything is okay or to identify errors.
With Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor, you can also analyze network performance in detail or obtain comprehensive statistics on the availability of your systems and services with just a few clicks. In the event of a malfunction, you’ll immediately see where the error lies and can get down to troubleshooting.
ITOps Board business process view
- Easy-to-read interface and outstanding usability
- Quick overview, detailed statistics, and custom reports
- Powerful ITOps Board for displaying business processes
The ITOps Board is a special PRTG Enterprise Monitor feature that displays business processes and dependencies. With just a few clicks, it creates diagrams and dashboards for all the processes and dependencies you wish to monitor. The ITOps Board can display IT services from the perspective of applications, infrastructures, or end users. The data is extremely easy to read, making it perfect for higher-ups with less technological expertise. Among other things, the ITOps Board displays:
- Email processes
- Shopping systems
- Production lines
- ERP systems
- Stock, warehouses, and logistics processes
- Network dependencies (e.g. between computer C and switch S or firewall F)
Only PRTG Enterprise Monitor inherently combines the monitoring of business processes with the monitoring of IT systems. With tools like SolarWinds, this is not possible at all – or only with complex configurations.
Keep an eye on your network –
even while on the go
Thanks to its mobile apps, PRTG Enterprise Monitor also lets you monitor your network while on the go. Designed for iOS and Android, these apps can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet, or Apple Watch. In the event of an error or warning, an alert is sent to your device so you can quickly go about fixing the problem.
Unlike the somewhat expensive “Mobile Admin” app from SolarWinds, the PRTG app is free for all platforms.
“Easy to implement and configure with good technical support.”
