Remote probes are an important part of Paessler PRTG. They allow you to monitor networks and devices in remote locations or branch offices. A remote probe acts as an additional monitoring instance and provides the sensors to monitor networks, devices and applications. Remote probes monitor autonomously and send the monitoring results back to the PRTG core server for each check they perform.

I often joke with my international colleagues that here in the UK, we measure the passing of the seasons by the temperature of the rain. Thanks to some research done by a local utility company, I recently found out that the area I live in is officially the “coldest, wettest and windiest” place in North Wales – I’m not sure if I should be proud or plan to relocate!

Air-conditioning systems in a data center are, among other factors, a guarantee of trouble-free operation of its servers, switches, storage systems and other hardware. Some manufacturers of air conditioning systems enable control of the devices via PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers). In these cases, PLC technology is the key in the air-conditioning technology for energy-saving cooling. Intelligent control helps to reduce energy consumption and avoid unnecessary costs.

Network automation can feel overwhelming. The big questions: what to automate, where to start, and how to go about it? Luckily, experience helps, and we had two very experienced IT guys discuss it on The Monitoring Experts podcast.

Together they discuss their perspectives of network automation and more importantly, they give some tips on how to approach it.

The operation of data centers is enormously energy and cost intensive. In order to evaluate the efficiency of the energy used in data centers, there are several approaches that can be used to quantify energy efficiency. In this context, two key figures appear frequently:
