Optimize Your PRTG Experience

PRTG Network Monitor is a popular network monitoring platform with advanced monitoring capabilities. UVexplorer Server’s core strengths of fast and accurate network discovery, detailed device inventory, and automatic network mapping are a powerful complement to PRTG’s monitoring features. For this reason, UVexplorer Server makes a great companion product to PRTG. To optimize your PRTG experience, UVexplorer Server integrates tightly with PRTG to bring fast and accurate network discovery, detailed device inventory, and automatic network mapping to the PRTG platform. Here’s how:

  1. UVexplorer Server’s network discovery is fast and gives you a detailed picture of your network and devices in just a few minutes. Once you’ve discovered your network in UVexplorer Server, you can easily export your discovery results from UVexplorer Server into PRTG. In this way, UVexplorer Server helps you get your PRTG server configured and monitoring in a very short period of time. You no longer have to wait for PRTG’s lengthy discovery process to complete, or create PRTG devices, sensors, and maps by hand. UVexplorer Server can do the work in a fraction of the time.

  2. UVexplorer Server works hard to discover the low-level structure of your network, so it understands exactly how your devices are connected at the Layer-2 link and port level. This allows UVexplorer Server to automatically generate detailed network maps, and to keep those maps up-to-date whenever the network changes. UVexplorer Server’s network maps can be easily exported into PRTG. Rather than creating PRTG maps by hand, you can let UVexplorer Server create them automatically, and then export them into PRTG (including automatically keeping them up-to-date in PRTG as your network changes).

  3. UVexplorer Server collects detailed inventory information for the devices on your network (system information, serial numbers, IP/MAC addresses, host names, installed software, network interfaces, network connections, route tables, ARP caches, BIOS information, and much more). Device details can be viewed in UVexplorer Server’s console, or you can export this data into PRTG so that it can be viewed directly within the PRTG console. And, each time UVexplorer Server re-discovers your network, it automatically keeps detailed device information up-to-date in PRTG.

  4. If you request it, UVexplorer Server automatically creates sensors on devices that are exported into PRTG. When you export discovery results from UVexplorer Server into PRTG, you can specify what sensor types you want UVexplorer Server to create on the exported devices, and it does so automatically. This is great for creating sensors in bulk (e.g., Ping sensors), and you only get the sensors that you specifically ask for. And, UVexplorer Server automatically keeps your PRTG sensors up-to-date as your network changes (e.g., when new devices are added to the network).
