Monitor bandwidth consumption in a PRTG Enterprise Monitor environment


For the sake of context, a few years ago our reseller Omicron AG from Switzerland set up an installation of PRTG with 10,000 SNMP sensors for one of their customers. It scales to large IT environments with thousands of devices and systems across multiple locations, providing an easy way to gain visibility and control of increasingly complex infrastructures. PRTG Enterprise Monitor consists of a few components including ITOps Board, Elasticsearch, IIS, and SQL server. The goal of todays article is to show you how you can monitor bandwidth used between ITOps Board, PRTG Core servers, and other relevant components. It is important to understand that the Packet Sniffer sensor can only access and inspect data packages that flow through the network interfaces of the probe system.
