What is a “Sensor” in PRTG?

In PRTG sensors are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, such as the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server and the free space of a disk drive. On average you will need about 5 – 10 sensors per server or one sensor per switch port.

All licenses of PRTG only differ by the maximum number of sensors that you can monitor. PRTG offers more than 200 sensor types, each one counts as one “sensor”. In PRTG you create “devices” which represent the actual devices in your network, and on those devices, you create “sensors”.

About Devices and Sensors:

  • For example, create a device for your Firewall, another for your Exchange server, and a third one that represents your Printer.
  • On each device, you create one or more “sensors“.
  • Each sensor monitors one single aspect of a device. This can be, for example, Ping time, the CPU load on a server, the traffic of a network interface, or the status of toner cartridges.
