So we have 1 Core server, 1 Local probe and 9 remote probes. Altogether this holds around 7000 sensors.
"Rule of thumb: Typical PRTG installations almost never run into performance issues when they stay under 5,000 sensors, under 30 remote probes, and under 30 user accounts."
I understand we are over the "desired" amount of probes however are well under in probes and user accounts.
The last year we have noticed a massive drop in performance, for instance speed issues for all users, complete application outages. We are currently experiencing an issue where 5000 of our 7000 sensors are coming back as unknown and 6 of our are 9 probes are disconnecting constantly, we are looking for recommendations on how we can break PRTG down further to help with this burden on the core server.
We have taken the usual steps of turning off auto discovery on devices, tried to increase polling intervals. Removing unnecessary sensors etc.
I am wondering if we can create multiple core servers to distribute the load?
Or can we partition the core server into segments and assign certain probes to that partition?
Or any other suggestions that we can implement would be greatly appreciated.
