Dear vickyjey

How many SSH sensor do you (on average) have per Linux computer, and which scanning interval did you set in PRTG?

Dear vickyjey

With two sensors per machine and a 5-minute scanning interval, the SSH connections created by PRTG should not slow the computer down. Can you check the logs and check how many connections are created by the PRTG probe?

Please also let me know which PRTG version you are using.
