We are evaluating PRTG for our monitoring needs. We are a hosting company that will have approximately 1000 servers, and even though i have been able to setup basic stuff on PRTG, i have not been able to find all the information I need.
Please let me know if there are answers to the following questions:
1. Related to Custom Netflow/SNMP Sensors. 1.1 Is there a KB article that can explain how to add these types of sensors? 1.2 Are the sensors "exportable"? If so, is there any sample configuration for one of these sensors? 1.3 Are there any videos on how to create these? I have searched, so far nothing.
2. Related to Detecting Network Attacks. I am planning to have PRTG monitor the activity at the perimeter of our network, we will be pushing some 60Gbps of traffic, and it is Imperative that we have visibility into the network, as far as attacks go.
2.1 Is there any documentation that covers how to detect SYN Flood attacks? 2.2 Is there any documentation that covers how to detect DOS attacks? 2.3 Is there any documentation that covers how to detect DDoS attacks?
With this i can work and hopefuly decide if this is what we are looking for.
