Alternatives Considered: Splunk Enterprise

Reasons for Choosing PRTG: It was giving us much more functionality with same prices.

Switched From: LogRhythm Log Management

Reasons for Switching to PRTG: PRTG was Ace in all the features it was providing and it was trusted platform in the market.

A well priced, well featured Network Monitor

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Substance over spectacle is in our value system, and PRTG has always delivered on substance. Their updates have been rock solid over the last 10+ years and we’ve been able to effectively leverage PRTG to catch, alert, investigate, and address issues, bit pro- and reactively.

Pros:

PRTG has allowed us to accurately monitor our network and systems as well as been the forefront of our notification system for 10+ years. There tool has been easily implemented in multiple environments and for multiple workloads for us. It has a good ability set, and has received modern updates as new technology has emerged.

Cons:

The interface, while easy to evaluate on a limited environment, can become cluttered or larger than feasible for a quick dashboard-type view on larger environments. It provides good logs and graphs for deep dives, but can be seen as dated in it’s presentation compared to other options on the market.

Alternatives Considered: Datadog

Reasons for Switching to PRTG: Datadog is an interesting product and priced well, but ultimately it wasn’t enough ROI to invest in a switch.

PRTG - a helping hand in monitoring devices

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: After the initial configuration setup the software pretty much finds what needs to be monitored and suggests ever sensor available. So, pretty easy.

Pros:

It just took off all the manual work of checking equipments and let's me know when there's a problem.

Cons:

Havng to remove the auto discovery sensors manually because my licence didin's allow for that many.

Alternatives Considered: Solarwinds Log Analyzer

Reasons for Switching to PRTG: Better price and simplicity of use. Other tools were more expensive and didn't add any value over PRTG.
