So, a one hundred percent availability is accessible, even with update procedures and server outages. The multiple points-of-presence-monitoring will be expressly highlighted when compared to the other products in the test: all server always monitoring all sensors. “This is interesting not only in terms of fault tolerance, but allows the administrator, for example, also, response times from different locations in the network out to measure, compare and calculate aggregate up and downtimes.” The size of the contained sensors again increased with the launch of the new version, also impressed. To monitor all common network services (ping, HTTP, HTTPS, POP3, DNS), QoS, SLAs, and RADIUS server by default, sensors in the package include Exchange and syslog servers as well as SNMP and WMI, packet sniffing, NetFlow and sFlow. The range of the sensors was especially in the areas of virtualization, and Linux monitoring complements.
Automatic network detection of PRTG recognized and classified all devices in contrast to other solutions, tested completely and correctly. In addition, the four different user interfaces were highlighted. An AJAX-based Web interface, an HTML interface for browsers and mobile devices (IE 6/7, Android, BlackBerry), a Windows GUI, as well as an iPhone app. The probably most frequently used interface, AJAX, is elegant and easy to use”up the tester. To fall by a seemingly good deal prematurely awarded fair pricing and licensing policy pay off the conclusion includes the unique Council of editors, not in the case of a cost”.
The tester over the competitors here for a basic advantage of PRTG, because the solution contrary to the usual market licensing models combines all of the features in a license without additional costs and required Add-ons: most manufacturers offer cheap Standard editions’, which can often but hardly as to monitor a few nodes in a single network segment. It comes later to more, for example, distributed monitoring, NetFlow or SLA monitoring, slamming manufacturers and call rates, which elsewhere to get a nearly complete package for any eventuality.” Christian Twardawa, CEO of Paessler AG, sums up: the variety of the features of PRTG including the USPS as the clustering function in combination with the unique on the market, fair all-in “pricing trend, like us are the result of the test and the feedback from our customers confirms. Particularly pleased that our aims at the continuous development and optimization of PRTG bear fruit.” More information about the test and PRTG under available.
