Installing multiple PRTG servers on same site



We have some real performance issues on our PRTG system (the webinterface is terrible slow.) We are thinking about taking some monitoring functions and put them on their own PRTG servers/nodes. What does the license say about this?

Each license (except for Enterprise Unlimited Site licenses) may only be installed on one machine. You can, however, distribute the monitoring load by using remote probes.

For performance issues, please see also How can I speed up PRTG - especially for large installations?
