Monitor Zoom around the clock
Keep an eye on the status of all Zoom services
Verify the video
The Corona crisis has shown us that without remote work and video conferences, most company processes would come to a standstill. Consequently, the demand for flexible and reliable video conferences tools has skyrocketed. And more often than not, Zoom is at the top of the list. PRTG Network Monitor monitors all Zoom services and immediately sounds the alarm in the event of errors or malfunctions.
PRTG keeps a constant eye
on the status of Zoom
For companies that use Zoom as a videoconferencing platform, monitoring is a must. Monitoring is the only way to ensure that video meetings take place as planned. The connection must be maintained between the host and the participants, the meeting must go off without a hitch, and the video conference or webinar must be recorded without hitting any snags. PRTG Network Monitor comes with a sensor that monitors each of these requirements and incorporates the Zoom Service Status into your monitoring environment.
PRTG monitors live streaming, video recording, downloads, and more
The PRTG Zoom Service Status Sensor monitors the status of all Zoom services. It lets you identify video conference platform errors and disruptions from one central location. Among other things, the sensor shows you whether video can be recorded without problems during a Zoom webinar or if a connection can be made to a special virtual conference room. It also keeps an eye on the chat function and the Zoom telephone service, which allows users to join a meeting even if there is not enough bandwidth for audio and video.

The importance of monitoring Zoom video conferences with PRTG
Video conferences have all but replaced the traditional company meeting. As a result, communication via the Zoom platform must be both smooth and easy. PRTG automatically detects unexpected errors and malfunctions, allowing you to quickly turn to another video conference system in the event of an emergency.
Webinar providers who rely on Zoom to distribute their content want to make the platform as reliable as possible for their participants. Thanks to the PRTG Zoom Sensor, you can quickly switch to another webinar platform (such as GoToMeeting) if Zoom goes down.
The Zoom platform must work well for all participants, from the time the application is downloaded until the participant enters the virtual conference room. PRTG comes with the necessary control modes to make sure this is true. If users run into problems while downloading, the IT admin can find another way to provide the Zoom application. The same goes for video recording that is unavailable during a scheduled meeting or webinar.
If unexpected difficulties arise with the Zoom platform, the IT admin can use PRTG to identify the source of the error and make sure all participants are informed of the problem. If necessary, the admin can implement a “plan B,” by switching the meeting to another platform (for example).
PRTG also monitors Cisco Webex and other video
You can use the Paessler monitoring tool to monitor many other video conference tools besides Zoom. These include Cisco Webex, GoToMeeting, RingCentral Americas, and join.me.
If you wish to monitor Microsoft Teams with PRTG, the Microsoft 365 Service Status Advanced Sensor is available with version 20.3.61. And with the REST Custom Sensor, you can monitor more exotic video conference systems such as BigBlueButton. In this case, however, some manual tweaking is required.
