Monitoring Virtual Environments

Network monitoring tasks are extensive and diverse Nuremberg, June 29, 2011 the software PRTG network monitor ( at an early stage shows irregularities in the network administrators and provides detailed real-time data about the current state of all devices. As a recent customer survey shows the manufacturer’s PRTG-Paessler AG, network monitoring, and in particular the monitoring of virtualized environments is becoming increasingly important. VMware sensors is more than half of the 724 respondents regularly to monitor their virtual server of a tendency rising. Learn more at this site: Vitamin D1. Only SNMP and WMI sensors are still widely used. One of the main reasons for the use of PRTG is and remains the enormous time savings at the network management according to the users.

Around 90% of respondents indicated that significantly save time resources using the PRTG in network management, 43% were more than three hours per week. The trend of last year, the software as an additional instance of the security and to employ early warning system has been confirmed once again. Around 80% see also network monitoring in addition to the usual security tools as a reliable method, early detection of attacks from the outside. The 96% the most important task of the system continues to be the uptime / downtime monitoring according to the respondents, and this applies particularly to virtualized systems. More than half use regularly VMware sensors of the Virtualisierungstrend in companies continues. The results show that the network monitoring study conducted.

Around two-thirds of respondents a professional network monitoring is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the virtual environment. 51% regularly use VMware sensors, over 20% use other sensors for virtual systems. A recent study by technavio confirms that the requirements will increase to real-time monitoring solutions to monitor cloud based applications and virtualized environments. We have this trend “early recognition and deliver with PRTG various native sensors for different cloud and virtualization”, so Dirk Paessler, development officer of Paessler AG.
