Probe & RaspberryPI (Windows on ARM) feasibility ?



Hi everyone,

I would like to monitor equipments over a LAN thanks to an RPI.

I do not want to use any Linux based OS because of limited probe features and I heard it is possible to install either WoA (Windows on ARM) or Windows IoT (core Windows) on an RPI.

My questions are : - Does the PRTG probe support running on a non Graphical Windows such as Windows IoT ? - What are the minimum requirements to run a probe ? (I am considering to run the graphical window plus a probe)

iot linux probe rpi3 windows woa

Hello there,

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, we do not officially support running PRTG on Windows systems in "Core" mode. Please see our manual for the system requirements for remote probes.

Kind regards,
Sasa Ignjatovic, Tech Support Team
