User Story

As a PRTG User, I want PRTG to monitor it's setup sufficiency in relation to evolving monitoring load.

Details of User Story

At present determining PRTG System requirement is left to the administrator with the guidance available in the manual. This is not elegant as in large networks this will become a challenge.

For business reasons if the administrator has to change the monitoring interval or make additions to devices, sensors, adding particular types of resource heavy sensors such as WMI, SNMP V3 insufficiency is established after the change only when sensors turn grey. By the time the reasons are diagnosed and mitigation is put in place, precious time is lost. Large and complex installations become very sensitive to changes. At present we only have system configuration guidelines which according to me is insufficient in modelling the dynamic behavior post change implementation.

This feature is vital for large installations to make PRTG Robust.

Acceptance criteria

There is a strong case for either a model, extracted from PRTG in implementation, which accepts proposed change and provides change impact analysis with recommendations or PRTG itself should monitor system configuration sufficiency to the applied load and provide admin alerts.
