Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I really love the activity library. It gives the flexibility to discover data and metrics about my interface and data server.""It improves the status of my infrastructure, from networking devices to real-time machines.""The scalability is good. You can improve a remote host or the clustering. This gives it the flexibility to monitor another infrastructure remotely.""The best feature is that it lets me know what is going on. I need to know if something has gone down, I need to know if something is running very slowly. PRTG tells me that.""Its proactiveness is its most valuable feature. We already know when we come in, in the morning, if a server or site is down, as opposed to someone telling us.""One of its valuable features is the fact that it handles multiple operating systems... And I like the fact that it tells me when things are about to fall over, which means I can preempt it and not have to wake up at three in the morning to fix it.""The sensors and probes are great, nice and lightweight, they don't take up too many resources on the system. We just deploy them out and they start reporting instantly.""Speed of deployment is one of the most valuable features."

"The most important for us is how fast this solution is, as well as the granularity that you can get to, such as per-minute statistics.""We were having some issues with a certain site, and it was only Statseeker that showed us what the problem was.""The graphics and trends are the most valuable for us.""Being able to look back historically at the uptime and downtime is invaluable.""This solution allowed us to track down trouble users.""In terms of network visibility, Statseeker can be very granular. We can tell it exactly where we want it to go and where we want it to check, or it can do an SNMP walk and find out where everything is. It's very detailed.""Statseeker helps to quickly see if you have a spike or something going on. In the future, we need to get NetFlow in the tool so we can see what the IP is.""It also allows us to predict the capacity on WAN circuits, as well as other circuits, to help us plan for upgrading."

Cons
"I would like to see a more robust platform and a new dashboard. In addition, the code is good, but it needs improvement.""There seems to be a big jump from the basic scan to the really thorough scan. There is a big jump in the quantity of sensors it uses for certain things. One minute you might get ten and then the next you get 200. There seems to be a big jump between the two at times.""It probably has this already, but if it had a mobile app that would be helpful. For example, on a day like today when I'm out, if I could just fire it up and see green, green, green, green, green or red, that would be good.""It would be good if there were better graphical interfaces when you have it on multiple monitors... Because we have so many servers, things can get lost in the fog a little bit. Maybe having a better way of showing different geographies, Flash, etc., would help.""When it comes to third-party integration, one of the things we were looking at was putting some sensors onto our firewall, for instance. If there were a little bit more documentation and some step-by-step guides around that, that would be useful for us.""The Desktop app is good but it can be really sluggish at times, especially when you're editing different elements.""In terms of sensors and probes, it would be really cool if PRTG had a purely Azure-based solution. We had to install a probe on one of our cloud servers and then let that probe out from there. It would be really cool if it just monitored Azure without having to install something on the device.""Sometimes, it is difficult to drill down further to get information, e.g., if we saw spike in traffic, then we would want to drill down and find out what is causing that spike in traffic."

"I'd say the interface could improve a little bit. I find with new users, I tend to have to spend a bit of time walking them through how to use the interface. It could be a little more user friendly.""Maybe they could provide a little bit more flexibility on creating custom dashboards.""I would like to have soft alarming. If an inner-base all of a sudden triggers a threshold, we have to rely on a lot of other tools and then we go into Statseeker to verify it. If Statseeker would confirm it preemptively and trigger it into our network panel, that would be nice.""We haven't seen an ROI.""I would like the ability to update the dashboard. I would also like the ability to access via an API. Then I could produce a dashboard that my C level can understand. This is just so they can go and refresh whenever they want to and see what things look like.""With Statseeker I'd like to see some flow, i.e. what's tuning-up the network. The trend I like is managing the traffic load by going to the cloud.""The user interface needs to be made more intuitive.""This solution would be improved with better automatic discovery for ping-only devices."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price was pretty good, very competitive.""The pricing is not too bad. It's not massively expensive, and the ability to upscale or even downscale licenses every year is brilliant for us.""On a yearly basis, I believe it's between £1,200 and £1,500.""We've got 1,000 nodes and I believe it's a few hundred quid a month.""Because we are only on the free version, we have a limited number of sensors. Therefore, we are not monitoring as much as we want to be to obtain historical information.""We are licensed for 2500 endpoints.""We pay for a perpetual license and we have a support fee.""We've got the unlimited package... I believe it was around the £15,000 per year mark."

More PRTG Network Monitor Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We paid $5,000 to $10,000 a year in maintenance.""We have permanent licenses so there's really no cost, other than ongoing maintenance. When I think about it, that's running us about $20,000 a year.""It would definitely be a yearly licensing cost, but I don't know what it is.""It's probably $5K a year for the license.""Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.""We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD.""The yearly cost varies as per the number of devices being monitored. The cost for 25,000 devices is about $4500.""When it came to selecting this solution, it came down to cost."
