As a PRTG User, I want an installable agent for Windows servers to pull information instead of WMI and SNMP.
Details of User Story
Windows has deprecated SNMP with Windows Server 2012 and WMI is not efficient above 200 WMI Sensors per Remote Probe. Other monitoring tools offer an installable agent for monitoring and I think that would be useful for instances where I need more then 200 WMI Sensors. Previously I was able to monitor our whole environment with 1 server. Now I am using 6 servers for approximately 8000 sensors and need to add additional Remote probes to accommodate the WMI load.
- It should work on Windows Server Operating Systems
- It should be light wait and take a small footprint on the server. (Under 500 MB)
- It would be nice if it uses limited Bandwidth for monitoring low bandwidth sites (Ex. Satellite Connections)
