Remote probes are helpful for monitoring with PRTG because they can extend your monitoring.

  • With remote probes, you can monitor different subnetworks that are separated from your PRTG on premises core server by a firewall, and you can keep an eye on remote locations. You can install one or more remote probes.
  • Remote probes are useful if you want to distribute monitoring load by taking it from the PRTG core server system and putting it on one or more remote probe systems.
  • You need a remote probe if you want to monitor your local network using a PRTG hosted by Paessler instance.
