How many probes allowed with free license?



I am currently using the free version of PRTG (up to 100 sensors). I was wondering how many "free" probes am I allowed? In terms of licensing, is a probe considered a sensor?

Hi Rodger,

A Sensor is one object you monitor in PRTG, like i.e. an interface of a switch, the CPU utilization or memory usage on a target device. For more detailed information, please have a look at this article.

Best regards, Felix
