What is a Sensor?

In PRTG, sensors are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your infrastructure, for example, the traffic of a switch port of the free space of a disk drive.

On average, you 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 use for monitoring.
Note: When you buy one license now, you can upgrade to a larger one at any time by paying the price difference.

About devices and sensors:

  • For example, you can create a device that represents your firewall, a device that represents your Exchange server, and a device that represents your printer.

  • To each device, you can add one or more sensors.

  • Each sensor monitors one single aspect of a device. This can be, for example, the Ping time, the CPU load on a server, the traffic of a network interface, or the status of the toner cartridge.
