Hi. Here at our HQ datacenter we have had PRTG running successfully for years, and we are now looking into how to best make use of PRTG for monitoring 50 branch sites.
The branch sites are connected to HQ via low bandwith (256Kbs) high latency (1000ms) satellite links. Each branch site is a separate stand alone environment with approximately 6 devices and 50 sensors to be monitored (Windows servers, VMware ESXi, Cisco switches, ..)
A PRTG monitoring dashboard should be accessible at the branch site also when the WAN communnicaton link is down
The solution should keep monitoring traffic on the WAN link to a minimum.
Are there any best practices for a scenario like this? Should we for example go for stand alone PRTG installations at each site, or would the use of remote probes be a better approach?
Best regards Harald
