Server monitoring allows you to monitor any server connected to the Internet. When a server error or a network connectivity problem occurs (this is monitored by PRTG PING tool), you receive an instant alert informing you of the problem, so you can take immediate steps to resolve it. Monitoring your servers then helps you increase critical server uptime.
Server monitoring can also be used as a syslog server or SNMP Trap Receiver: PRTG stores the sent log messages analyzed and stores them in a central location, after which an alarm is triggered.
Alarms can also be configured to notify you when a server or a drive fails (this is monitored by PRTG PING tool), CPU or memory usage reaches critical values, or if the hard disk space for your server is running out. This allows you to divide system resources properly and prevent downtime. In addition, PRTG gives you an overview of your network and gives you the ability to control your servers and Internet connections, and it’s also easier to troubleshoot Windows networks.
