Network problems create business emergencies. When the network goes down, employees can't read emails.  Customers can't purchase the product.  Work stops. Network monitoring helps you keep your business healthy:

  • Avoid expensive outages 
  • Address bottlenecks before they cause problems
  • Reduce costs by buying only the hardware you need


Bandwidth Monitoring: Find Out Who Is Using Your Network, For What

Firewall traffic monitored by PRTG

PRTG Network Monitor runs on a Windows machine within your network, collecting various statistics from the machines, software, and devices which you designate.  (It can also autodiscover them, helping you map out your network.)  It also retains the data so you can see historical performance, helping you react to changes.

PRTG comes with an easy-to-use web interface with point-and-click configuration.  You can easily share data from it with non-technical colleagues and customers, including via live graphs and custom reports. This will let you plan for network expansion, see what applications are using most of your connection, and make sure that no one is hogging the entire network just to torrent videos.

PRTG can collect data for almost anything of interest on your network.  It supports multiple protocols for collecting this data:

  • SNMP and WMI
  • Packet Sniffing
  • NetFlow, jFlow, and sFlow


Knowing When Things Break Is Good. Knowing Before They Break Is Even Better.

Monitoring results of a Ping sensor

PRTG Network Monitor includes more than 130 sensor types for all common network services, including HTTP, SMTP/POP3 (email), FTP, etc.  We can alert you to outages before your users even notice them, including via email, SMS, or pager.  Even better, after you use PRTG to track request times and uptime for a few months, you can optimize your network such that the pager never rings again.  PRTG can print reports showing how good a job you are doing.  (Tell your boss that your 100% uptime last quarter deserves a raise.  We'll even print you the report to do it with.)

We Speak Your Language

PRTG is available in English, German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Japanese, Czech, and Chinese. You can access PRTG from a Windows desktop application or through a web-browser running on any platform. If you want to check on your network from the road, you can use our native iPhone/iPad apps or Android apps on your phone or tablet.

Fair Licensing. Public Pricing. No Surprises or Hidden Costs.

Don't you get disgusted by enterprise software companies which make you talk to a salesman to hear what the price is? Or ones which quote one low price and then tack on high extra charges as soon as you want to do anything interesting? We hate that, too, so PRTG has a simple licensing model. You pay one price for this version of the software, based on how many sensors you need (i.e. how many things you want to track on your network), regardless of technology used. It is installed software: there is no recurring monthly charge. All licenses include all sensor types, an unlimited number of remote probes and Failover clustering (1 master node and 1 failover node).

We have a maintenance plan available so that you can get free upgrades to the next version of the software and get support: you'll get free upgrades/support for one year and can purchase additional years of upgrades/support if you want to.

Not sure how many sensors you'll need? We offer six licensing options, one of them will fit your needs. As a rough guideline, small business networks usually fit in our 100 sensor package, which costs $400 or €300. Most large businesses can fit in the 2500 sensor package, for $4,700 or €3,500. (European companies without a VAT ID and German companies will need to add 19% VAT tax.)

The Commitment To Quality You Expect From German Engineering

We're a small but established software company in Germany, and PRTG has been our main product since 1997. If you ever need support, you'll deal with our in-house engineers and networking experts. Your business is too important to be fobbed off on a call center that will tell you to try rebooting the PC. We answer almost all emails within 24 hours on business days, and have multiple staff members who are native or near-native in most languages PRTG supports. We're proud of the support we offer, but we're even more proud that most of our customers never have to speak to us at all, because -- unlike some software you may have suffered through -- our product actually works.

Trusted By Experts, Including 150,000 Sysadmins and the Press, Too

IT magazines Funkschau and Network Computing have selected PRTG as the winner of their comparison tests of selected monitoring says: "With German-engineered features ranging from basic SNMP monitoring and alerting, to Netflow collection and packet capture, Paessler’s PRTG is well worth taking a look at". says: "You don't expect specialist network monitoring tools to be simple, but even experienced engineers have difficulty getting to grips with some products. Fortunately that's a charge which can't be levelled at PRTG Network Monitor from German developer Paessler AG".

Comprehensive Network Monitoring

PRTG offers many sensor types out-of-the-box

Flexible Alerting

  • Status alerts (up, down, warning)
  • Limit alerts (value above/below x)
  • Threshold alerts (above/below x for y minutes)
  • Multiple condition alerts (x and y are down)
  • Escalation alerts (extra notifications every x min during downtime)
  • Dependencies (avoid alarm floods)
  • Acknowledge Alarms (no more notifications for this alarm)
  • Alert Scheduling (no low priority alerts at night)

PRTG Cluster Failover Solution

Cluster failover solution

  • In a PRTG Cluster up to 5 PRTG instances ("Nodes") work together to create a failover tolerant monitoring system.
  • Not even a software update causes downtime for a PRTG cluster.
  • The cluster performs automatic failovers: If the primary node fails or loses connection to the cluster, another node immediately becomes the master server and takes over the sending of notifications. Thus notifications are always sent, even if the primary master has no connectivity or has crashed.
  • Moreover, you can achieve multiple points-of-presence monitoring, all nodes monitor all sensors all the time. This means that response times are measured from different locations in the network (LAN/WAN/VPN) and can be compared with each other. Additionally, aggregated up/downtimes can be computed.
  • And here comes the best part: All PRTG licenses allow you to create a "Single Failover" installation (two installations of PRTG working together) with just one license key (additional license keys are required for 3 or more nodes).

Distributed Monitoring Using Remote Probes

With the so called Remote Probes PRTG Network Monitor can be used to monitor several networks in different locations:

  • Monitor all subsidiaries from the headquarter
  • Monitor separated networks within your company (e.g. DMZ and LAN)
  • As MSP you can monitor your customer's networks and increase the quality of service

  • Interactive map designer with more than 300 different map objects (network icons, status icons, traffic charts, top 10 lists, etc.)

Easy to Understand - Multi Language Interface

PRTG comes in different languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Czech, Japanese, and Chinese. You can easily switch between these languages, even after the installation. PRTG can also be translated into any other language using the PRTG Translation Tool.

In order to install and work with PRTG Network Monitor you need:

  • A PC, server or virtual machine with roughly the CPU performance of an average PC built in the year 2007 or better and minimum 1024 MB RAM memory
  • Microsoft® Windows 7 or later (server or workstation, 32 or 64 bit)
  • Web browser Google Chrome 34 or later (recommended), Firefox 28 or later, or Internet Explorer 10 or 11 to access the web interface

Planning an installation with thousands of sensors?

As a rule of thumb an average PC/server built in the year 2007 or later should be able to monitor 1,000 sensors with ease (some exceptions for SNMP V3, WMI, packet sniffing, and VMware apply). 

Important notice: We recommend using a dedicated physical machine to run both the PRTG core server and PRTG remote probes. If you run PRTG on a virtual machine, we strongly recommend to stay below 2,000 sensors for performance reasons. Unfortunately, we cannot offer technical support regarding performance and stability problems for PRTG installations on virtual machines that run with more than 5,000 sensors. In this case, please migrate PRTG to one or more, preferably physical, machines.
