Simple monitoring - detection and load



I'm a learning technology developer in an multi-site education provider and we are having fairly frequent slow-downs and interruptions in inter-campus networks.

Question 1. Can I setup PRTG and use it to monitor connections and connection speed to a couple of machines at each campus that I have install permissions on.

Question 2. How detectable would that be?

Thanks in advance, V

Hello verzog,

Thank you very much for your interest.

Yes, PRTG is able to monitor connections and the speed to different machines. You could simply start with PRTG’s auto-discovery and download the free trial, it will do most of the work for you.

Please have also a look at our E-Learning and video tutorials which give you the best information to step into PRTG.

Anyways, please don't hesitate to contact use again if you have further questions. The best method to interact would be an email to [email protected] and we'll be happy to help.

Best regards,
