Monitor response times: FAQ
Response time monitoring is a performance measurement practice that assesses the time it takes for a system or application to respond to a user's request. It involves tracking the duration between the initiation of a request and the receipt of the corresponding response.
Monitoring response times is crucial for identifying performance bottlenecks, optimizing system efficiency, and ensuring a positive user experience as faster response times lead to improved satisfaction and engagement and reduce downtime and disruptions of business operations.
Absolutely, PRTG is capable of monitoring the response times of various applications in addition to network devices, providing a holistic view of your network's performance.
Yes, PRTG can monitor the response times of cloud-based services, ensuring comprehensive coverage of both on-premises and cloud environments.
Yes, you can customize the threshold values for alerts in PRTG, allowing you to define what constitutes an abnormal response time for your specific network environment.
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, for example the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, or the free space on a disk drive.
On average, you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
