Monitoring Linux with PRTG: Safe and Efficient


  • PRTG provides secure and comprehensive monitoring of Linux-based networks.
  • PRTG automatically notifies you when thresholds are exceeded.
  • PRTG allows you to continuously monitor the structures, traffic and connections of the network.



Flawless monitoring of Linux-based networks with PRTG

Companies need centralized network management. The most important workflows are executed over the company’s internal network, the core of which can be a Windows or Linux server. Administrators’ mission is to ensure business continuity and cost-effective use. A professional monitoring program such as PRTG will help with this.

PRTG software is compatible not only with Windows systems, but also with networks built on the basis of Linux servers. Linux Monitoring provides an overview of the status of systems and devices, as well as information about traffic intensity and potential bottlenecks. You also get important information about users, connections, and network structure.

With PRTG’s built-in Linux server monitoring tools, you can find informed solutions for future development and optimization of service management. Linux Monitoring also allows you to track free disk space and quickly troubleshoot memory errors. In addition, PRTG provides time synchronization (NTP) monitoring.

PRTG provides administrators with an overview of Linux networks, employees with a stable work environment, and managers with reliable data. Improve your network performance and fix problems before they occur.

Thanks to PRTG, everyone will be able to work calmly.


Here’s How Linux Monitoring Works with PRTG


PRTG uses Linux and Unix sensors to monitor the operation of Linux systems, without having to install or modify anything on the target device. Monitoring by the Linux operating system is performed via SNMP and SSH protocols, and Linux servers are monitored using WBEM and SSH protocols. When using the SSH protocol, data is transmitted over a secure connection to prevent the loss of confidential information during the transmission of monitoring data.

Configure your own thresholds and alarm values. These values are used to inform you of a dramatic increase in memory usage on one or more servers. Such information is especially important for application servers and terminal servers used by so many users. Even standard applications, such as text editors or spreadsheets, can take up so much system memory that it affects the performance of the system as a whole. PRTG notifies you before memory issues occur, allowing you to optimize network performance in the long run.

Monitoring Linux systems with PRTG also allows you to monitor the available hard disk space on Linux systems and time synchronization using the Network Time Protocol (NTP). PRTG tools for monitoring the operation of Linux servers collect data on the load on the system, RAM and hard drives directly from the corresponding systems.

Seven Reasons to Use PRTG as a Linux Monitoring Tool


The PRTG dashboard provides convenient overviews of the status and performance of your Linux network, incomplete and redundant boot, NTP, hard drives, and memory.

If you’re in danger of overloading bandwidth or exceeding a different threshold, you’ll be notified immediately wherever you are.

You will not need to retrieve various information about the state of the system yourself. You can rely on the Syslog sensor and the PRTG notification system.

Continuous monitoring eliminates critical weaknesses and inconsistencies on the Linux network without delay.

Linux network monitoring allows you to monitor unusual incidents, analyze suspicious traffic, prevent critical errors and quickly put new resources into operation.

Monitoring and quick decisions provide your colleagues with a stable and efficient IT environment and lay the foundation for achieving your company’s goals.

With PRTG, you get a detailed view of the traffic patterns on a Linux network and can take appropriate steps to grow your business.
