Has Paessler development team made any progress on building a remote probe agent that will run, either natively or in emulation, in Linux?
Besides the remote probe compatibility with Linux, does Paessler have any plans to develop a version of PRTG for Linux? That would be most excellent.
I am planning to deploy some remote probes into Amazon EC2 to gain some better visibility of public facing web applications than what we can see from our internal network.
I really dislike the idea of having a standalone Windows server instance sitting out in the cloud doing who knows what. I'm sure after 10 days of not logging in, I will be prompted to download the latest Adobe flash update, Adobe reader update, Java JRE Update # 78. I can deploy a Linux distribution with less than 512MB disk space and no desktop.
Without support for probes and core services on Linux hosts, I give Paessler an 8 out of 10.
