Support for more than 10.000 Sensors




I have a new Feature-Request, I'm hopefull, passler willl implementate the Support for more than 10.000 sensors.

It would be desirable to be able to parallels multiple PRTG probe servers and use another PRTG server for rendering. If I understood correctly, the limitation lies in the way Passler stores the configuration. I would imagine that the databases remain scattered on probe servers and access a remote server's main server over the network for Display

Cheers, Marco

Hi there,

We have installations that run smoothly with 10.000 sensors +, but that requires serious performance-based configurations with only scanning intervals of 5+ minutes and no High Performance Impact Sensors.

As we currently are about to anti-age PRTG and to modernize the Core we are working on allowing customers to use more than 10.000 sensors, however right now this is not considered as stable. This is a long process as you can imagine.

With other words, we have that feature surely in mind as it is not a barrier we added to PRTG it is simply the architecture of PRTG that currently hinders users from using more 10.000 sensors with a still stable and performing installation.

Best regards.
