Make PRTG 8 Look like PRTG 6



I use PRTG 6.2 to show traffic graphs for various routers I'm responsible for. I installed a fresh copy of, and configured my devices and sensors. Now I have a screen that won't show me graphs of all of the devices simultaneously, but I have to click into each device/sensor separately to see its activity.

I have 6.2 plastered on a screen that's behind me that I can do a quick "at a glance" look to see if someone's downloading something or if a router is down. Is there a way I can make 8.4 look like 6.2? I'd attach a graphic of what I'm hoping it'll look like, but don't see an "attach image" link here.

I have the same issue, I want to see ALL my graphs at the same time re PRTG 6 this is a great tool to just leave running.

PRTG6:- Simple to add sensors, alerts etc... ADD addsensor wizard etc...

PRTG8/9 - Once you finally manage to add a sensor the views are now not simple quick look and see what is happening, it is a case of navigating through to see any events.

In PRTG 8 / 9, we really recommend to use maps to get quick glance overviews over your network-monitoring. Yes it is a bit different compared to PRTG 6.
