Monitor remote resources (CPU, RAM, etc)




I have one question. I run PRTG on my Windows Server 2019 machine and sensors for this PC work ok. Is it possible to monitor resources of others PCs (workstations)? How can I do it?

Thank you in advance

Hello there,

As long as there is a connection and the according credentials are applied you can gather the information from you core server. Therefore, you can add multiple groups and devices with the respective IP address/ DNS names to your device tree. For example a Ping Sensor might work without further credentials, but for most WMI Sensors you will need further credentials. We recommend to use a domain administrator to monitor the needed stats.

Kind regards,
