    • We added a new PDF generator for reports to PRTG.
  • Improved [Server]: Performance improvements for the web server
  • Improved [Sensors]:
    • You can now define a scaling factor (multiplication and division) for values of sensor channels with custom units.  You can find this option in the respective channel settings. Note: Sensors with a scaling option in the sensor settings do not provide this option in channel settings. There are also some other sensors with custom units that do not support this feature.
    • The EXE/Script Advanced sensor can now make use of a meta-scan functionality. For details please see this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/68109
    • HTTP Transaction sensor shows the URL of the page that provokes a warning or error status in the sensor message.

  • Improved [Server]: Stability and performance improvements for lookups.
  • Changed [WebGUI]: We replaced the Configuration Guru from PRTG with a new setup assistant. This Smart Setup is less complex than the "old" guru and helps creating an initial monitoring setup that already shows interesting data about a network.
  • Changed [Security]: If the port that is originally configured for the PRTG webserver is not available when using a secure SSL connection, the server now tries port 8443 as fallback to keep the secure connection. If this port is also not available, PRTG tries from port 32000 on until it finds an available port and keeps the SSL connection.
  • Changed [WebGUI]: New installations do not have an automatic object numbering anymore. If you add new sensors, reports, maps, or libraries, the object name will not get a number appended. For details, see this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/53903
    Note: Existing installations which update to this version are not affected. If you want this behavior, you have to edit the Windows registry manually as described in the article linked above.
  • Changed [Maps]: We replaced existing default icons (PNGs) with SVGs for a better scaling. This changes also the icons in already existing maps. Note that this might affect the look of your existing maps, so please check them after the update.

  • Improved/Changed [Sensors]:

As soon as you acknowledge a remote probe connection to your PRTG core server, the connected remote probe will be visible on all your master and failover node(s). The probe connects automatically to the correct IPs and ports of the cluster nodes. You can define the cluster connectivity of each remote probe in its "Administrative Probe Settings". This way, you can still see monitoring data of remote probes even when your master node fails. For more details, please see our blog article Cluster Support for Remote Probes: Failover Nodes Show Remote Probe Data
  • Bugfix [Notifications]: Stability improvements for push notifications
  • Minor improvements and fixes

  • Bugfixes [Sensors]:
    • We improved the memory usage of the HTTP Transaction sensor.
    • SSH sensors can now also scan for available monitoring items if you use a private key for the login into the target device.
  • Bugfix [Maps]: Links using the IM protocol work now.
  • Bugfix [Libraries]: Filtering by tags with + and - works as expected again.
  • Various fixes to the Enterprise Console and other parts of PRTG

 

May 12th 2015 - Version 15.2.17.2345/2346 [Preview]

  • New [WebGUI/Server]: You can set up sensors to run at a specific time (or at various specific times) on a day. Using a special syntax, you can define the desired point(s) in time in the "Scanning Interval" settings of the PRTG System Administration. For details, please see the Knowledge Base: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/3723
  • New [Freeware]: There are no restrictions for scanning intervals anymore in the PRTG freeware edition. Like in commercial and trial versions of PRTG, you can now use scanning intervals below 60 seconds (we recommend that you do not use less than 10 second intervals).
  • Improved/Changed [WebGUI/Server]:
    • Probe Connection IPs are editable again via the PRTG web interface.
    • PRTG now creates a log file "mibparser.log" for better debugging of MIB imports.
    • It is now possible to allow PRTG user accounts with read-only rights to change their passwords by themselves. You can define this option in the corresponding user account settings.
    • Read-only users cannot view names of security related fields in settings anymore (for example, names of credentials, domains).
    • Some minor security improvements and fixes.
    • Stability improvements for Active Directory integration
    • Maximum length of one entry in summarized email notifications is now 1000 characters (was more limited before).
    • Access keys for Remote Probes support angle brackets < >
    • Debug logs for notification delivery (https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/55363) create one log file for each sent notification.
    • Performance improvements for Libraries.

  • Improved/Changed [Sensors]:
    • Proxy support for Cloud Ping and Cloud HTTP sensors: These sensor types can use the proxy server as defined in the "Core & Probes" settings of PRTG.
    • Update of the SSH library to support additional key exchange mechanisms (diffie-hellman-group14-sha1).
    • Several improvements to the IP on DNS Blacklist sensor: As of this version, this sensor type follows the RFC 5782 where IPv4-based DNSxLs (blacklists and whitelists) must contain an entry for 127.0.0.2 for testing purposes. In previous versions the sensor did not check this, providing a false sense of security when using non (or no longer) existing DNS blacklist servers which always report that the IP is not listed. Because of this change, you might get errors now that were not there previously if you request outdated blacklist servers.
    • SNMP Cisco ASA VPN Users sensor is limited to 50 users: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/64053
    • SNMP Cisco System Health sensor gets more specific tags to describe the type of the monitored system health parameters in a better way. Note: This results in losing custom tags when saving this sensor as template.

November 11th 2014 - 14.4.13.3467/3468 [Preview]

Note: This is the most secure PRTG ever built, including a fix for the POODLE problem. But this tightened security has side effects. Most notably all your Enterprise Consoles on client machines will need to be updated manually. Also some SSL based sensors and notifications may be affected. See the following knowledge base article for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61769

Note: The PRTG configuration file created by this version is not downwards compatible with previous versions of PRTG. This means, you cannot switch easily between this version and a version number starting with 14.3.11. As soon as you run PRTG version 14.3.12 or later, you can only downgrade to an earlier version of PRTG if you recover the latest configuration file before the update. For more information about recovering a previous configuration file, please see https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/12313

Note: Important change to the SNMP HP ProLiant System Health sensor! This sensor now uses a more sophisticated method to determine the "Overall Status" channel. The OID we used in the previous version did not work anymore in our labs after updating to the latest software version from HP. The sensor now uses the proper OID and displays the same status as the HP software does. The overall status is not something that PRTG is making up, but it is directly read and displayed from the target system. This can lead to more possible error cases. You will find details about this behavior in the sensor settings. For more information, please see this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61805

  • Bugfix [Server/Probes]: Outgoing IP settings were not synchronized between the "Administrative Probe Settings" in the web interface and the PRTG Administration Tool. 
  • Bugfix [Web Server]: For new installations, the PRTG web server now listens on all IP addresses on the SSL port 443 for incoming HTTPS connections by default. HTTP connections are redirected from port 80 to 443.
  • Bugfix [Remote Probes]: In some cases the download during automatic Remote Probe updates was canceled too early. The fix will be effective with the next update after this update.
  • Bugfix [Notifications]: Email notifications (text) containing non-ASCII characters were not correctly encoded.
  • Bugfix [Sensor]: HTTP Push Data Advanced sensor switches now to "Down" status if the pushed XML defines an error status.
  • Bugfix [Mini Probes]: Stability improvements for Mini Probe connections.
  • Some minor fixes to several parts of PRTG and an updated user manual

  • Several other minor fixes to all parts of PRTG.

October 21st 2014 - Version 14.4.13.3289/3290 [Preview]

This is the most secure PRTG ever built, including a fix for the POODLE problem. But this tightened security has side effects. Most notably all your Enterprise Consoles on client machines will need to be updated manually. Also some SSL based sensors and notifications may be affected. See the following knowledge base article for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61769

  • Bugfix [Cluster]: In a PRTG cluster, not all settings for the cluster connections were correctly deployed
  • Plus several other improvements and fixes for the Enterprise Console, the web interface and sensors

October 7th 2014 - Version 14.4.13.3157/3158 [Preview]

  • New: Free-to-Use Push Notifications
    With this update, we introduce a great new notification option: You can now send push notifications to your Android or iOS devices—for free, included in every PRTG version, even in the PRTG Freeware! This is a very comfortable way to get alerts from PRTG. All you need is PRTG for Android or PRTG for iOS and you can set up your free push notifications within seconds. Please see the Knowledge Base article How can I send push notifications with PRTG? for details.

  • Important! Changes to SSL: We had to make substantial changes to the way PRTG negotiates and establishes secure connections. This affects all SSL based functionalities of PRTG. Incidents like Heartbleed, OpenSSL updates, and other causes make these changes necessary. Among others, this concerns notification methods as well as the monitoring with many sensor types that use SSL encryption for their connections. In some cases we could even remove SSL specific settings and replace them with auto-negotiation, for an easier use.

    We put a lot of effort into these changes and into not affecting your workflow, but it is still likely that you see some unexpected side effects for your specific environment, systems, and hardware. After this update, please have a close look at your monitoring configuration and be prepared that you might have to work on it afterwards. We try to migrate all settings during the update, but in some cases notifications and/or sensors may stop working and you may need to manually adjust settings.

    Note:
    When used with an https URL, the HTTP sensors mentioned below now try to connect via any accepted SSL/cipher combination, just as a web browser would do.

    In detail, the change affects the following areas of PRTG:

    Notification methods (when used with encryption):
    • SMTP (outgoing mail)
    • SMS
    • HTTP
    • Amazon SNS

    Sensor types (when used with encryption):

    • HTTP
    • HTTP Advanced (with default monitoring engine)
    • HTTP Content
    • HTTP Transaction
    • IMAP
    • POP3

September 12th 2014 - Version 14.3.12.2945/2946 [Preview]

Note: The PRTG configuration file created by this version is not downwards compatible with previous versions of PRTG. This means, you cannot switch easily between this version and a stable version number starting with 14.3.11.

As soon as you run PRTG version 14.3.12.2673/2674 or later, you can only downgrade to an earlier version of PRTG if you recover the latest configuration file before the update. For more information about recovering a previous configuration file, please see https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/12313

July 25th 2014 - Version 14.3.12.2509/2510 [Preview]

  • Extended [Freeware]: We are making the Freeware of PRTG 3 times more valuable! The freeware edition can now monitor up to 30 sensors for free (instead of only 10 sensors)!
  • New [Sensors]
    • There are 4 new sensor types for SQL server monitoring: The sensors Microsoft SQL v2, MySQL v2, Oracle v2, and PostgreSQL monitor SQL databases directly using .NET 4.0 and are much more flexible than the previous SQL sensors.
    • The new SSH SAN Enclosure sensor monitors the health of an enclosure on an SAN that supports CLI over SSH.
    • You can now specify after how many failed sensor scans a sensor status will be set to a ‘down’ status if a device reports an error. Define this in the "Scanning Interval" setting.
    • Newly created Ping sensors now send multiple ping requests with 5 pings by default. All requests have to fail to set the sensor in a "down" status. Existing Ping sensors keep their current setting. This will minimize false alarms due to packet loss.
    • The new open source tool QoS Reflector enables you to use a QoS (Quality of Service) Round Trip sensor without installing a remote probe at the 'end' of the connection. The QoS Reflector is a Python script so that you can use any Linux machine as QoS roundtrip endpoint. See our Knowledge Base for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61176
  • New [WebGUI]: Google Universal Analytics integration: You can track the usage of the WebUI of PRTG in your Google Universal Analytics account. Simply create a Google Analytics Tracking ID in the analytics portal and enter it into PRTG’s system administration settings and PRTG will dynamically integrate it into the website. See our Knowledge Base for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61406
  • Improved [Security]:
    • We have massively upgraded the encryption security of PRTG’s webserver to make the usage of PRTG even more secure.
    • We have upgraded the OpenSSL libraries to version 1.0.1h (these are used for SSL connections of the web server, the core/probe and probe/probe connections as well as for most sensor types that offer SSL).
    • We have locked down the accepted ciphers for SSL connections to the most secure ones that will allow for “Perfect Forward Secrecy” and TLS 1.2, ensuring that a session key derived from a set of long-term keys cannot be compromised if one of the long-term keys is compromised in the future. Even if somebody wire taps your communication with your PRTG server and gets access to your private keys later, he will not be able to decrypt the old data.
      Note: Older browsers and older versions of the Enterprise Console may not be able to connect to the PRTG webserver any more. There is an option in the PRTG webserver settings that allows to (temporarily) switch to a compatibility mode with weakened security, so these clients can connect again. Please update your browsers and the Enterprise Console to the latest version.
    • The admin can set a time after which the WebUI automatically performs a logout to prevent unauthorized access (under System Administration | User Interface).
    • We are now removing all encrypted passwords from the config.dat file before it is sent to Paessler support in support bundles when the user chooses this function.
  • Improved [Sensors]:
    • Amazon CloudWatch Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) sensor has two new channels for the HTTP status codes 3XX and 5XX (analog to the already existing 2XX and 4XX channels)
    • The File Content sensor allows now to specify the “Read Behavior”: You can choose to process only lines which are appended to the file to improve performance instead of reading the whole file with each sensor scan.
    • HTTP Push Data sensors have now the option to define an age threshold. If no data is received for this time or longer, the sensor shows an error
    • The DNS sensor now supports IPv6 requests to monitor DNS servers which are only reachable via an IPv6 address.
    • The SNMP Traffic sensor has a new option to ignore the ‘disconnected’ status if the port is set correspondingly in the hardware (‘admin down’).
  • Improved [Templates]: You can now exclude specific sensors from a device when you create a device template.
  • Improved [Libraries]: Libraries include now "Add Library Node" and “Add Group” buttons similar to the “Add Device” and “Add Group” buttons in the device tree for easier creation of a library.
  • Improved [Notifications]: New placeholders for syslog receiver and trap receiver notifications show the last 20 entries without any filter before the notification was triggered: %syslogmessages, %trapmessages
  • Changed [System Administration]:
    • The PRTG Server Administrator and PRTG Probe Administrator tools are now together in one universal admin tool: The new “PRTG Administrator” tool includes all available probe and core settings (besides the administration settings which you can change via the webGUI).
    • You can now change administrative probe settings (outgoing IP, restart options) on the "Settings" tab of local and remote probes in the webGUI. This was in the PRTG Probe Administrator tool before.
  • Changed [Reports]: Scheduled reports will not be executed on failover nodes by default anymore.
  • Changed [Sensors]: Some sensor types now need .NET 4.0 installed on the probe machine (was .NET 2.0 before). For details, please see the Knowledge Base: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/60543
  • Bugfixes [Sensors]:
    • Hyper-V sensors can now handle server names which include parentheses “()”
    • HTTP Push Data sensors didn’t filter correctly for the specified HTTP request method; if there are POST requests, only the postdata part will be processed (has to be "application/x-www-form-urlencoded") and not the GET parameters.
    • WMI Security Center Sensor now triggers a change notification when the status code of the antivirus software changes.
    • Cisco CBQoS sensor works more robustly
    • Amazon CloudWatch sensor (ELB) now retrieves the correct value for maximum with (Un)HealthyHost (was the sum value before)
    • Syslog Receiver displayed UTF-8 encoded messages incorrectly.
  • Bugfixes [WebGUI]:
    • Fixed “selection tree” and “breadcrumbs” behavior for read-only users (the “Find Duplicates” and “Compare Sensors” functions did not work properly; clicks on specific breadcrumbs caused an error)
    • “Down Acknowledged” sensor list could not be opened via the status icon in maps
    • “Desktop Notifications” work again with Google Chrome browser and now Firefox is also supported.
  • Bugfix [Cluster]: Sensor names on cluster probes were shown incorrectly when collapsed
  • Many other bugfixes and improvements in the Enterprise Console and in all parts of PRTG, as well as an updated user manual.

    • New PRTG default certificate (with RSA 2048bits)
    • When using administrative pages in the webGUI, PRTG now requires that the last credential based login was less than 15 minutes ago. If more time since the last login has passed the user must re-authenticate before being able to continue. This secures the webGUI against potential phishing attacks.
    • Browser form auto-complete for login name and password on the login page can now be disabled via a registry key option as security enhancement: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/60614

March 5th 2013 - Version 13.1.3.1474/1475 [Preview]

This release contains the code of focused development work from the last five months. The most obvious change: We have revised the entire web interface. It now reacts almost instantly, and with new control elements and colors, data is now easier to consume. Plus, we added a lot of new features here and there to make PRTG even more convenient to work with. For detailed information, please see

Some of our users use custom CSS, HTML, or their own icons to change the look&feel of PRTG's web interface and/or reports. Please note that this kind of customizations will be disabled after an update to the current version and you will have to rework them. For details, please see https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/44703

Please empty your browser cache if you experience display issues when loading the new web interface for the first time. Supported browsers are Chrome 14 or later (recommended), Firefox 10 or later, and Internet Explorer 9 or 10.

The changes in detail:

  • New [WebGUI]: Completely revised and updated look&feel of the PRTG Ajax Web GUI
    • Faster loading times and almost instant reaction on clicks
    • All settings loaded in layer popups so you never lose the context of your work
    • New view modes for Libraries: Sunburst, Tree Map (as known from the device tree)
    • Revised devices overview page: Extra display of high-priority sensors, in different sizes, for sensors with 4 and 5 star priority
    • Revised sensors overview page: Graphical display of sensor channels with gauges. For xFlow and packet sniffer sensors, the "Toplist" graphs are now shown in the "Overview" tab. Edit channel settings directly on a sensor's "Overview" tab.
    • Redesign of built-in dashboards, sitemap, and top 10 lists
    • New sensor comparison page: compare several sensors at a time
    • New default colors for graphs
    • Changed appearance of buttons, tables, etc.

    • The Enterprise Console profits from the changes, too - whenever it embeds parts of the WebGUI
  • New [MobileGUI]: Revised Mobile Web GUI: Easier to read and new look&feel
  • New [Core]: Similar sensors analysis: PRTG automatically detects similar sensor data and shows matches in your sensor's "Overview" tab. This function is totally independent from sensor types and uses pure mathematics for heuristic calculation. (You can configure this feature in the "System & Website" system settings.)
  • New [Graphs]: Display of sensor limits: If you set a limit in a sensor channel (for example, an upper or lower warning limit, or an upper or lower error limit), these limits will be shown in the new sensor gauges as yellow and red areas. Additionally, yellow and red areas can be shown in graphs. In order to show the colored areas in graphs, you must configure your graph to show one sensor channel only. Otherwise the limit areas will be hidden in graphs. For details, please see our knowledge base at https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/48463

    • New: Performance Counter Memory
    • Offers an alternative to WMI monitoring (can ease the load for installations with many WMI sensors)
    • Sensors use RPC for communications (less overhead that WMI) and require the “Remote Registry Service” to be enabled on the target systems, this is usually the case for Windows server products, but not for workstations.
  • Improved [Sensors]: HTTP Full Page Sensor can now store website screenshots
    • just the last screenshot,
    • or a screenshot for each sensor check
    • screenshots can later be found in PRTG’s data folder (on the probe system)
    • Use with caution, screenshotting requires a lot of CPU cycles and creates 1440 image files per day for a sensor with 1 min interval
  • Improved [Core]: PRTG web server can now run on https (SSL) on a user specific port (other than 443)
  • Changed [Sensors]: SSH Port settings has been moved to the device settings

July 29th 2012 - Version 12.3.1.2450/2451 [Preview]

  • New [Cluster]: Users can now select which cluster nodes are used to monitor a specific group/device (e.g. when not all cluster nodes can connect to a subnet or VPN)
  • New [Sensors]: MS Exchange Transport Queue Sensor
  • New [Sensors]: Added a third option to the HTTP Full Page sensors. With this new third option you can enable screenshotting of each sensor run. You can either save only the latest screenshot, or each screenshot of this sensor. The image files will be stored on the probe system (user can set the number of days until the files are purged, creates a lot of data on the disk). This option needs plenty of CPU cycles and should not be used too heavily.
  • New [WebGUI]: Added an experimental feature that allows a user inside the WebGUI to install a remote probe on a Windows device in the sensor tree (Context menu of devices, device tools, install remote probe). The remote probe is automatically installed and configured. Afterwards it will show up at the bottom of the sensor tree and the user must approve the probe. Then sensors can be set up as usual. This is a great way to circumvent WMI or other connectivity problems by running sensors directly on the device.
  • Improved [Core]: When Active Directory integration is used all requests to the AD servers are now cached for one hour. Before this caching was implemented large and/or slow AD environments could potentially slow down PRTG’s user interfaces. If a password is changed in the AD you must either wait for 1h or clear the cache manually (on the status page).
  • Improved [Graphs]: Graphs now display the applied averaging interval at the bottom right
  • Improved [Sensors]: Added timestamp into emails of email round trip sensors
  • Improved [Sensors]: SNMP Custom String now supports RegExp
  • Improved [Sensors]: When devices need extensive time to answer WMI requests the sensor will be labeled “sluggish” because these sensors can actually affect the performance of the complete WMI system for all devices. We recommend to either install a probe directly on these devices or at least move these sensors to a dedicated probe
  • Bugfixes: Various bugfixes for the EC, core, sensors and probe

July 17th 2012 - Version 12.3.1.2319/2320 [Preview]
