Professional, all-in-one packet analysis tool

PRTG saves time, money and nerves

PRTG is a network monitoring tool for Windows that has a number of features for monitoring traffic and bandwidth. PRTG uses SNMP, Netflow, WMI, and packet analysis to monitor data packets.

  • PRTG monitors traffic
  • PRTG monitors data packets
  • PRTG Performs IP Address Filtering
  • PRTG performs protocol filtering
  • PRTG filters by data type



A network packet sniffer (also known as a packet listener or network analyzer) is a device or tool for monitoring traffic that travels over a network. The analyzer intercepts all packets transmitted over the network, analyzes them and provides information about this data.

The network packet analyzer sensor, among other things, monitors the following data:

  • total traffic,
  • web traffic (HTTP, HTTPS),
  • mail traffic (IMAP, POP3, SMTP),
  • file transfer traffic (FTP, P2P),
  • infrastructure traffic (DHCP, DNS, ICMP, SNMP),
  • remote control (RDP, SSH, VNC),
  • Other UDP and TCP traffic.

Desktop, smartphone, tablet… you can use the PRTG network packet analyzer on all of these devices. And this means that you will always be aware of problems in the network.


Packet Analysis: Why PRTG is the Right Choice



PRTG is a comprehensive network monitoring tool. It can be used to monitor all important hardware parameters such as processor and memory. In the trial version, all sensors are provided free of charge. The kit also includes a customizable alert system and a reporting module. No hidden and additional costs. Our motto: “All in one!”

PRTG rating lists provide a graphical view of IP addresses, devices, protocols, and connections. At a glance, you can understand what is happening on the network. By default, the packet sensor generates ratings at 15-minute intervals and saves the first 100 entries. Thus, the amount of data generated is minimized, allowing you to immediately see which of the devices consume too many network resources, as well as quickly track significant changes in traffic.

In addition to listening for packets, PRTG uses monitoring protocols such as SNMP and WMI, as well as xFlow technologies such as Netflow, sFlow, and jFlow. This allows you to periodically re-evaluate which of the protocols work better. For example, you can use Netflow for Cisco hardware, then a less resource-intensive SNMP is more than enough to get a general idea of the traffic.
