Hi there, first of all, apologies if my question doesnt make sense. I am relatively new to PRTG. I have been asked by my company to look at setting up some sort of network monitoring system. We have servers all over the world based on oilrigs and vessels. At the moment we remote in every week to make checks on health of the server/logs/events etc and check the wireless access points are all operational that are connected on that network.
Because of the company expanding there are more and more vessels that need to be monitored. Its currently taking too long to remote in and out of each one.
I have had a play about with the PRTG and the 30 day trial and have setup a couple of remote probes.
My question I have is how do I setup the probe to communicate back only when there's an issue rather than the core server based here sending messages to it constantly. Because of the setup on the rigs and vessels we communicate via satellite and are limited to bandwidth, hence why we only want the probe to contact back when theres a problem. Is this even possible?
