How to monitor SharePoint?




I've installed PRTG in my PC. Now I need to monitor a SharePoint site/server.

iis prtg sharepoint

It's basically like that:

  1. Configure WMI accordingly on the SharePoint server
  2. Create a new device that has the Sharepoints DNS name as address, e.g. sharepoint.example.com
  3. Right click the device and hit Add Sensor. In the searchfield, enter sharepoint
  4. Simply click the SharePoint Process Sensor and it will be added to the device.

If everything is configured properly, it should then look something like this:


Further information about the senor can be found on it's manual page.
Let me know if you're stuck somewhere! :)
