Set customized alarm thresholds
PRTG offers many preconfigured sensors, the basic elements that do all monitoring tasks.
Many of these sensors come with preset warning and error thresholds out of the box.
Of course, you can also set individual thresholds that fit exactly to your monitoring needs. If something goes wrong or shows unusual behavior, you’ll know right away.
But PRTG does not only alert you if downtimes or system outages occur. With fine-tuned warning thresholds, you can even detect issues before they happen and proactively take measures.
Also keep in mind to set priorities: not all systems are as business critical. Identify the most important systems and make sure that alerting rules for them are more granular than others.
