Cons
We would like to monitor certain aspects of the user experience. We should be able to analyze the cause of end user experience, bad or good, so we can do some research and development on our own.In a very few cases, customers want more detailed reports, which we cannot meet.Needs ability to monitor standard notification time (notify after X time).Mostly, this software has sensors for devices to monitor specs and you can build or develop or modify various sensors, according to your company's needs. But you may need to do that with coding or plugins or with the support of Paessler AG, the manufacturer.PRTG access works best from the web GUI. There are dedicated apps on Windows/Android/iOS, but they are slow and don’t work as well as the web GUI.

Pricing and Cost Advice
When you buy PRTG, everything comes in one bundle. Licensing is very easy.Sensors on free version can run out quick.The ability to use the base version with 100 free sensors is great. The cost on other packages can be very reasonable.If you're looking for a cost effective software I’d suggest this product.Licenses are very expensive, so I would like to see cheaper licensing.
