license Requirements for cluster servers



do I have to have a separate PRTG license for each server that is part of a cluster?

If so, does the license have to be the same for each cluster node?

Dear Scott,

All PRTG licenses allow you to create a "Single Failover" installation (two installations of PRTG working together) with just one license key (additional license keys are required for 3 or more nodes). See also PRTG 8 Beta - Page

Best Regards.
