PRTG Network Monitor Fact Sheet We here at Paessler find that a lot of similar questions keep coming up when administrators are evaluating our network monitoring solution PRTG Network Monitor. So we thought: why not list the 11 most frequently asked questions in one single document? Here you go!
The licensing options are based on the number of sensors (not on the number of devices or IPs). We define one sensor as one aspect that you monitor on a device. Therefore, one sensor monitors for example a specific URL, the traffic of a network connection, a port of a switch, the CPU load on a machine. Normally, we are calculating with between 5 and 10 sensors per device, but of course that depends on what exactly you want to monitor. You don’t need a bunch of add-ons or modules – each license includes all of the PRTG features in a single price! https://shop.paessler.com
