Keep a constant eye on
your Linux systems with PRTG Desktop

PRTG Desktop


Good news for Linux users. Although PRTG Network Monitor is Windows-based software and a Windows server is still required to install a PRTG core server, PRTG Desktop now provides a new interface that lets you connect to your PRTG core server via Linux.

With PRTG Desktop, you can configure your Linux monitoring environment, track your monitoring results, and keep an eye on your network.

 

 

Total control over multiple PRTG servers

PRTG Desktop lets you access several PRTG core servers or PRTG Hosted Monitor
instances at once.
It is therefore the perfect solution for managers of large networks or
those who offer PRTG monitoring as a service.

 

  PRTG Desktop is compatible with all the major Linux distributions

PRTG Desktop can be installed on all the most popular free and paid Linux distributions.

 

Ubuntu

Debian

MX Linux

Linux Mint

Fedora

 

PRTG Desktop also works on other Unix systems

PRTG Desktop also supports other Unix systems such as macOS and Solaris.

FAQ: PRTG and Linux

Can I install a PRTG core server or a probe on Linux?

 

No, a PRTG core server or a probe can only be installed on a Windows system. Find the exact system requirements here.

Can I install PRTG on a virtual machine?

 

Yes, but we recommend using a dedicated physical computer for the PRTG core server. If you decide to install PRTG on a virtual machine, cap the number of sensors at 5,000 and use fast processors to ensure your monitoring is as effective as possible. Click here for more recommendations on using PRTG on a virtual machine.

Do you plan on creating a version of PRTG that is compatible with Linux?

At the current time, we do not plan on developing a version of PRTG whose core server can be installed on Linux. If you’re set on using PRTG with Linux, go ahead and try our hosted version.

Monitor Linux servers and systems with PRTG

In search of software that monitors Linux servers and systems? PRTG is a great choice.
Thanks to preconfigured sensors for Linux and Unix, your monitoring environment is set
up in just a few clicks. Among other things, PRTG lets you monitor the following parameters:

 

Python Script Advanced

The Python Script Advanced sensor executes a Python script on the computer and is provided as part of the PRTG API. It can show values returned by the Python script in multiple channels (must be valid JSON or XML).

SNMP Linux Disk Free

The SNMP Linux Disk Free sensor monitors free space on disks of a Linux/Unix system using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Free total disk space in bytes
  • Free space in bytes for every mounted partition
  • Free space in percent for every mounted partition
  • Free inodes in percent for every mounted partition

SNMP Linux Load Average

The SNMP Linux Load Average sensor monitors the "load average” of a Linux/Unix system by way of Secure Shell (SSH) or the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

SNMP Linux Meminfo

The SNMP Linux Meminfo sensor monitors the memory usage of a Linux/Unix system using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

SNMP Linux Physical Disk

The SNMP Linux Physical Disk sensor monitors the input/output (I/O) on disks of a Linux/Unix system using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Read bytes per second
  • Written bytes per second
  • Number of read accesses per second
  • Number of write accesses per second

SSH Disk Free

The SSH Disk Free sensor monitors free space on disks of a Linux/Unix system using Secure Shell (SSH).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Free disk space in bytes for every mounted partition
  • Free disk space in percent for every mounted partition
  • Total disk space

SSH INodes Free

The SSH INodes Free sensor monitors the free index nodes on disks of Linux/Unix and macOS systems via Secure Shell (SSH).

SSH Load Average

The SSH Load Average sensor monitors the load average of a Linux/Unix system using Secure Shell (SSH).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Average system load within a 1-minute interval
  • Average system load within a 5-minute interval
  • Average system load within a 15-minute interval

SSH Meminfo

The SSH Meminfo sensor monitors the memory usage of a Linux/Unix system using Secure Shell (SSH).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Available memory in bytes
  • Available memory in percent

SSH Remote Ping

The SSH Remote Ping sensor remotely monitors the connectivity between a system running Linux/Mac OS X and another device, using Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo requests (Ping) and Secure Shell (SSH).

The sensor can show the following:

  • Packet loss in percent
  • Minimum, maximum, and average response times measured from the remote device you connect to

SSH SAN Enclosure

The SSH SAN Enclosure sensor monitors a storage area network (SAN) enclosure via Secure Shell (SSH). The SAN has to provide a command-line interface (CLI) for this purpose.

The sensor can show the following:

  • Overall status of the enclosure
  • Health status of the power supplies
  • Health status of the controllers

SSH SAN Logical Disk

The SSH SAN Logical Disk sensor monitors a logical disk on a storage area network (SAN) via Secure Shell (SSH). The SAN has to provide a command-line interface (CLI) for this purpose.

The sensor can show the following:

  • Health status of the disk
  • Number of input/output (I/O) operations per second
  • Transferred data per second

SSH SAN Physical Disk

The SSH SAN Physical Disk sensor monitors a physical disk on a storage area network (SAN) via Secure Shell (SSH). The SAN has to provide a command-line interface (CLI) for this purpose.

The sensor can show the following:

  • Health status of the disk
  • Number of input/output (I/O) operations per second
  • Transferred data per second

SSH SAN System Health

The SSH SAN System Health sensor monitors the system health of a storage area network (SAN) via Secure Shell (SSH). The SAN has to provide a command-line interface (CLI) for this purpose.

The sensor can show several metrics of an SAN, depending on the available measurement components on the SAN:

  • Overall unit status
  • Temperature and temperature states
  • Voltage and voltage states
  • Capacitor charge and status

SSH Script

The SSH Script sensor connects to a Linux/Unix system via Secure Shell (SSH) and executes a script file located on the target system. This option is provided as part of the PRTG API.

The sensor can show the following:

  • Execution time
  • One value returned by the executable file or script (in one channel only)

SSH Script Advanced

The SSH Script Advanced sensor connects to a Linux/Unix system via Secure Shell (SSH) and executes a script file located on the target system. This option is provided as part of the PRTG API.

The sensor can show the following:

  • Execution time
  • Values returned by the script in multiple channels. The return value of this sensor must be valid Extensible Markup Language (XML) or JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).

 

Server capacity

If the memory or processor is overloaded on one or more servers, the performance of your entire network can suffer. PRTG keeps you updated on the current capacity and notifies you in the event that your predefined or personalized threshold values are exceeded. As a result, you have a much better chance of stopping bottlenecks in their tracks.

Available hard disk space

PRTG also lets you monitor the available hard disk space in Linux systems. Our software uses SSH or SNMP to retrieve hard disk information directly from the systems

4 advantages of PRTG

User-friendly and intuitive

PRTG is made unique by its intuitive and easy-to-understand user prompts and interface. Setting up and working with PRTG is both straightforward and convenient. At the same time, you can customize the software a number of different ways to meet your own individual needs.

Prompt alerts in the event of errors and warning messages

PRTG lets you define threshold values for all your sensors. If these thresholds fall below a certain value or are exceeded, you’ll immediately receive an alert by email, SMS or push notification. You can therefore identify errors and prevent problems before they arise.

Quick overview and detailed statistics

Easy-to-read dashboards provide for a quick overview, while various long-term statistics offer a more in-depth look at your network. You can check the average load of your Linux system during the past 6 months, for example

PRTG is the basis for an efficient IT infrastructure

PRTG monitors around-the-clock, allowing you to continually prevent errors and downtime and provide for a stable IT environment. Our monitoring software increases employee productivity and saves time and money that would usually be spent on manual troubleshooting.
