Enhance PRTG Enterprise Monitor with PRTG SLA Reporter

Combine the two for even better SLA monitoring & reporting


Whether you monitor websites, services, applications, or specific devices in IT infrastructures that play an important role in production and business processes – all of these components should (ideally) be available at all times.

However, planned maintenance windows and unplanned downtimes mean that you can’t usually guarantee 100% availability. This is where the magic "five nines" – or 99.999% target availability – come into play.

With PRTG Enterprise Monitor and our product extension PRTG SLA Reporter, getting SLA monitoring in combination with powerful SLA reporting to keep track of your 99.999% is just a few clicks away.

How PRTG monitors service level agreements

Service level agreements are as different as the types of services a customer needs from a provider. It’s vital to define measurable values for SLAs so that the parties involved can concretely show, based on numbers, how well (or poorly) service providers are achieving their service goals.


Paessler PRTG can measure these common metrics for SLAs, and more:

  • Availability or uptime: The percentage of time that a device has been working or a service has been available and accessible to the customer.
  • Business results: The calculation, based on KPIs, of how service provider offers impact business performance.
  • Defect rate or error rate: The percentage of errors in the services provided, such as programming errors or missed deadlines.
  • MTBF (Mean Time between Failures): The time elapsed before a fault or failure occurs.
  • MTTR (Mean Time to Recovery/Repair): The time it takes to recover from errors or failures by repairing a system or bringing it back online.
  • Security: The measurement of controllable security measures such as antivirus updates or the application of patches.

Monitoring service level agreements: FAQ

 

What is a service level agreement (SLA)?

A service level agreement, or SLA, describes an agreement between the provider of a service and a customer who uses the service.

The SLA defines various aspects of the service, including:

  • Nature and extent of the service provided by the supplier
  • Quality or level of service, that is, which service standards apply
  • Metrics that make the quality of the provided service measurable
  • Consequences which apply if the service is not provided as agreed

Service level agreements are usually set out in a service contract. SLAs are popular in the IT sector, for example with IT service providers, cloud service providers, or managed service providers (MSPs).

Why is SLA monitoring important?

Monitoring service level agreements is important for both sides: for the service provider as well as for the customer. After all, an agreement only has added value if the involved parties stick to it – and monitoring makes compliance with the standards defined in the SLAs transparent.

Transparency for the customer

Customers should be able to check for themselves – independently of the service provider – whether the provider actually delivers all agreed services in full. To do this, they need the most meaningful figures possible on the availability and downtimes of the provided services.

Transparency for the service provider

Service providers should be able to make sure that they comply with the defined SLAs. On the one hand, to ensure the quality of their services, and on the other hand, to avoid legal action by the customer if they do not comply with the SLAs.

In combination with service level management (SLM), service level agreement monitoring also helps to optimize services and adjust SLAs accordingly together with the customer.

What is the difference between SLA monitoring and SLA reporting?

SLA monitoring focuses on real-time tracking and analysis of performance metrics to ensure compliance with agreed-upon standards. It involves ongoing surveillance to promptly address any deviations and maintain service quality.

On the other hand, SLA reporting involves the periodic generation and distribution of comprehensive reports summarizing performance metrics over a specific period. These reports provide stakeholders with insights into service performance trends, areas of improvement, and compliance with SLA terms.

What is PRTG SLA Reporter?

Paessler PRTG SLA Reporter is a separately licensed product extension of Paessler PRTG monitoring software by Paessler AG. It provides detailed SLA reporting based on monitoring data collected from your PRTG installations. You can only use the extension together with a commercial license of PRTG Network Monitor with active maintenance or an active PRTG Enterprise Monitor subscription.

What is a sensor in PRTG?

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.
