Is that Windows 2012r2 is faster than 2008r2?




I have 25 remotes probes and over 5000 sensors and the installation is slow.

I have read this: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/2733-how-can-i-speed-up-prtgespecially-for-large-installations

But there is nothing about 2012.

My core server is a 2008r2.

Keep your 2008R2 if you have a lot of WMI sensors since 2012/R2 has significant performance issues (about 20% slower than 2008R2) with WMI requests. Otherwise, PRTG runs with no problems so far on 2012 :)
