PRTG 2018 A vital importância da monitoração do ambiente de TI
"Os recursos de TI são elementos críticos para as empresas. Em muitas áreas de negócios, aliás, em tempos de transformação digital, a TI está intimamente integrada ao negócio. Já não é mais simplesmente uma ferramenta de apoio e sim elemento fundamental para a consecução dos objetivos. Mesmo para empresas menores é impossível para seus processos lidar com indisponibilidades dos recursos de TI, mesmo que parcialmente. Ser capaz de resolver problemas rapidamente e, mais do que isso, ser capaz de se antecipar na prevenção de situações críticas é de extrema relevância."

PRTG - acompanhando a infraestrutura crítica(sem custo) e com novos sensores
"Há algumas semanas publiquei o teste da versão mais atual da ferramenta PRTG, um recurso essencial para auxiliar a manter a infraestrutura de TI sob estreita vigilância. Mas percebi que características técnicas à parte, sobraram algumas dúvidas em relação aos benefícios que este tipo de solução traz de fato para as empresas. É oportuno dis cutir mais um pouco estes conceitos e ao mesmo tempo noticiar a nova versão gratuito da ferramenta que traz interessante benefício adicional."
Network Computing (UK) Review 2014
PRTG Network Monitor 14 from Paessler
"Paessler's PRTG Network Monitor has always been a firm favourite for keeping an eye on the lab and it provides some of the best tools on the market. PRTG is continuously developed, and the latest version (14) now under review delivers an impressive number of new and useful features. [...] Paessler's PRTG Network Monitor delivers a sophisticated toolbox of network monitoring tools neatly amalgamated into a single console. Its combination of excellent value, ease of use, and the ever increasing range of new features, puts the fun back into network monitoring."
funkschau Review 2014
See how it works
"funkschau reviewed, which Network Monitoring software is particularly suitable for monitoring the networks of mid-sized companies. [...] Important factors for these types of organizations are speed of installation, ease of use and the quality and usefulness of the information being provided. Based on these requirements, PRTG Network Monitor is the best solution for small and mid-sized companies. It can be operated by IT "all-rounders" and doesn't require specialist knowledge (although even the most advanced techies often prefer a simple, uncomplicated solution)."

Complete Control for Administrators
"Our test of PRTG 14 proved it to be an outstanding product. The solution scores especially high due to its fast, clear Ajax web interface, which ensures that monitoring remains clear and easy to use, in spite of the complexity of the task and the huge range of function available in Paessler's PRTG. Even with a high number of monitored systems, important sensors can be selected quickly and setting required threshold values and alerts is straightforward and fast. Functions like the maps and libraries contribute to improving the lucidity of the solution and make it even easier to work with."
Network Computing (UK) Review 2013
PRTG Network Monitor 13.2 from Paessler
"As Network Monitoring gets ever more sophisticated many products are struggling to cope with the increasing number and diversity of devices to be monitored as well as the volume of data generated. This can result in web console performance issues but Paessler has bravely tackled this head on by completely rewriting the front-end of its PRTG Network Monitor. It is much faster. [...]"
Network Computing puts it in a nutshell: "It [PRTG Network Monitor] is capable of presenting a lot of easily interpreted information using a single screen and the new web console's lightening quick responses makes network monitoring a pleasure, instead of a chore."
PC PRO Review 2013
"Good value, ease of use and a range of new sensors make this a top choice for network monitoring."
"Paessler’s PRTG avoids the hidden costs of network monitoring since it’s licensed by the number of software sensors, rather than systems and software elements. The latest version looks even better value for SMBs, as it comes with plenty of new features as standard. [...]"
funkschau Review 2013
Nothing comes without a price
Funkschau's test laboratory asks: "Is a company really getting away cheaper with an Open Source product than with a commercial package?" In the realm of open source network monitoring, especially 'Nagios' is a huge hit. A basic argument for this kind of solution is of course that it's free. But Linux/Unix expertise is vital in order "to configure the product properly and get it running [...]. Whoever can afford professional support quickly ends up in the same price class as a commercial solution like PRTG where professional support is included in the price."
Funkschau concludes: "It quickly became obvious that this was a comparison like 'Dacia Logan vs. Mercedes S-Class. [...] PRTG takes the lead not only for installation and the startup configuration but also for configuration changes, user management and report creation. [...] A world of difference lies between the graphical user interfaces of the two products: on one side a fast, modern, complete and optically pleasing interface - on the other a rather archaic, rudimentary interface. [...] Despite my love for open source software, I have no choice but to name PRTG Network Monitor as the clear winner of this comparison."
IAIT Test 2013
A Completely Revised Monitoring Solution for Corporate Environments
The German Institute for the Analysis of IT Components (IAIT) writes about the monitoring software's innovations: "A new web interface and revamped mobile web GUI are some of the new features in the current PRTG version. The new web interface is a single page application (SPA) and works faster than the previous version, loading all settings in layer popups, so that users never lose the context of their work [...]. The page containing the overview of individual sensors has been reworked. The sensor data is now portrayed in a graph with a speedometer-like display. Another important new feature is the "PRTG for Android" App. The user thus receives an easy-to-use and easy-to-navigate overview of all monitored components."
In this test PRTG especially scores with its usability: "The tool's service range was always impressive, and now the web interface also provides a much better overview. It is not only much faster, but also presents the information required by each user in a clear and logical structure, which can be adjusted to accommodate the user's needs at any time. Paessler has taken a great leap forward with the new version [...], which should more than satisfy any system administrator."
Network Monitoring Can be Surprisingly Easy
The German IT magazine LANline found: "PRTG has clearly proven that network monitoring and its configuration do not need to be a nerve- racking project that utilizes several working days. In practice PRTG is absolutely sufficient and due to the saved amount of work the cost price pays off in any case: An explicit recommendation."
funkschau Review 2012
Monitoring in the Fast Lane
"Paessler skipped two version numbers at once with the current release of their PRTG Network Monitor. We figure they've added enough new features to justify the jump - and we agree with Paessler, that version numbers are not that relevant anymore these days."
