Welcome to the second part of this blog series where I show you 15 things about PRTG that can make your everyday use of PRTG easier. If you missed the first part, which was about topics like ticketing system, libraries, viewing sensors by label or type, and tracking changes, I recommend you take a look here: 👉 15 things that make it easier for you to use PRTG (Part 1/3) Today I will show you 5 more interesting features and functions of Paessler PRTG that you may not know about. Here we go!
As a sysadmin, one of your greatest assets (that gets even better the more experience you have) is the ability to follow your hunches. Sometimes it’s a gut feeling about where a problem might lie. Or maybe it’s an idea for a solution that you can’t quite justify, but you just feel will work. In this sysadmin story, a hunch led to finding the root cause of a critical error that threatened to cost a construction materials company a lot of money.
Paessler PRTG is powerful monitoring software that allows you to monitor your IT infrastructure holistically. In addition to reliable notifications through various channels, the ability to create meaningful maps and more than 250 native sensor types, PRTG also offers a variety of other features and functions. In this three-part series, I will show you 15 things in PRTG that you should know and that can make daily use easier. Here's what I'm covering in the first article: Ticketing system Libraries Sensors by tag Sensors by type Tracking of changes Let's start!
The first time I had the opportunity to play with Fortinet devices, I asked myself: “How did I miss this? “ Fortinet provides quality hardware, user-friendly UIs, and easy-to-read documentation. They manufacture different products including FortiWifi, FortiAP, FortiAnalyzer, FortiDDoS, FortiGate, and others. This article is about FortiGate, powerful next-generation firewalls.

With an already long history in IT, Paessler PRTG has also been expanding into Operational Technology and IIoT. The idea is to help you manage the convergence of IT and OT in industrial environments by bringing all your monitoring data – be it from the factory floor, the front office or IIoT sensors – into one tool. PRTG does this by providing support for common industrial protocols and standards like Modbus, OPC UA, and MQTT on top of its legendary IT functionality. This makes PRTG useful for monitoring industrial environments, but how exactly can it be used for this? Here are four ways that PRTG can be used to monitor your IT, OT and IIoT data.
Hi, my name is Paul Amoah, I work for the Presales EMEA team at Paessler, and I'm going to show you what notifications and alerts in Paessler PRTG are for in this article.
A few weeks ago we introduced the new Multi-Platform Probe (early alpha), which allows you to install this probe additionally on non Windows-based platforms like Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Since PRTG version 22.1.74, which we released on February 1st, the Multi-Platform Probe now supports ARM based systems with either ARMv7 or AARCH64 architecture. My colleague Sascha also announced this in his article “First steps with the new Paessler PRTG Multi-Platform Probe”. This enables you to deploy your probe on systems like Raspberry Pi, AWS EC2 with Graviton CPU, and NAS systems, for example.
ALYN Hospital completed a major departmental restructuring by helping its IT team gain greater visibility of the functionality of its ventilators and life-saving machinery.
My name is Henk, and I work in the Presales team at Paessler. I'd like to introduce you to service level agreements (SLA) in general, and how you can monitor them easily with Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor.
In 2021 we introduced 3 Redfish sensors: the Redfish Power Supply sensor, the Redfish System Health sensor, and the Redfish Virtual Disk sensor. Right now, these sensors are in beta state and a part of the experimental features in PRTG.
Since you already know how much we love sharing case studies with you, let's get to the point quickly. This time, we show you how The Ritz London benefits from intuitive IT monitoring. PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful and easy-to-use solution, which is suitable for businesses of all sizes. In case you prefer PDFs instead of blogs, we have just the thing for you as well. The linked PDF can be found on this use case page. The Ritz is a luxury hotel that welcomes a discerning clientele who expect world-class service. The hotel’s IT network is no different. The Ritz London’s in-house IT team consists of six people and there are three members of the IT staff who monitor the IT network constantly. They need to maintain visibility of the health of the hotel’s core network, IT systems, building and cameras 24-hours a day. The IT team found that other solutions they had tried weren’t fulfilling their needs. As Richard Isted, IT Manager, The Ritz London explained: “We were not getting useful reporting from our previous monitoring systems because they were either hard to configure, difficult to maintain or lacked the feature sets to configure the more complex or unusual systems for monitoring.”

When I first started learning about industrial systems and architecture a few years ago, one of the first terms I bumped into was “SCADA” – short for “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition”. There’s a reason for this: SCADA systems are central to just about any OT environment. Because of how important they are to industrial infrastructure, it’s vital that they are up and operating as they should be. Let’s take a look at what SCADA systems do, and how to ensure that they are functioning as expected.
