prtg desktop memory usage is high



Your Vote:




I started getting warnings from the local probe about low memory.

The culprit was prtg desktop that took 50% of total memory (2gb). Just sitting there doing nothing useful.

Is there an option to not run desktop?


Thanks, Duarte Darreira

You can uninstall the PRTG Desktop App on your Core Server System.
