The Paessler support team has recorded some videos to help you start monitoring your network with PRTG.
The topics cover installation and auto-discovery, setting up notifications, and background
information on using remote probes in distributed networks.
PRTG Network Monitor has a hierarchical structure of probes, groups, devices, and sensors, called the device tree. The PRTG auto-discovery process will create a tree and group devices according to device type, such as network devices, servers, storage, etc.
In this video, you’re going to learn how to configure channel limits in PRTG. The channel limits are the upper and lower threshold limits where you would like your sensors to go into Warning or Down status, so you can get a notification when something goes wrong.
PRTG sensors can have multiple states, including up, down, warning, and several others. In this video, we explain the different states that are possible, what situations lead to those states, and how to view a list of sensors in each status.
In this video, we show you how to set up monitoring of temperatures and PDUs with GUDE appliances and PRTG. PDUs enable you to ensure the distribution of electric power to your data center. GUDE offers appliances to measure environmental values like the temperature of your server room.
In our new video we demonstrate how to set up a map within PRTG by using icons that represent the different devices, groups, and sensors in your network, and its connections. In the end, you'll have a great overview on the components' status in your network on one page!
In this tutorial, you will learn everything about bandwidth monitoring with flows and paket sniffing with PRTG Network Monitor.
We expand our map from the "Create Maps" video. You'll learn how to visualize firewall traffic, expand the map, add weather data from an external source, and how to divide the map visually into different areas. Learn all there is to know about maps and create a dynamic overview of your IT infrastructure.
