We at Paessler have a great team of all different personalities and interests. And for some of our coworkers, keyboards are more than just tedious working devices. They are ergonomic, nice to look at, have special technical features - and in the best case all combined. Of course we're not in the keyboard business and can't tell you with absolute certainty, which keyboards will satifsfy your needs. But these are the favorites of our team, categorized and analyzed (since we all love analyzing stuff).
Even the most stressed admins would like to have a bit of an Advent atmosphere, we thought, and that's why we arranged for a Christmas touch in PRTG Maps.
The paint has dried and we’re happy to officially announce that the new PRTG Version 17.4.35 has been released as stable.
Your website is down, your virtual machines working at a snail’s pace, or your free disk space is critically low? With its instant notifications, PRTG allows you to react quickly to network problems. But keep in mind, if your internet connection goes down, email or push notifications won’t work. Having a reliable alternative in reserve is really reassuring! At this point, the good old SMS text message comes into play.
Everything seems smart these days: smart phones, smart homes, smart watches and smart cities. It seems humans are devising more and more “Things” to think for us. Does that mean humans will become more stupid? Whatever your stance on this, the technological advancement behind it is recognizably impressive.
We are very pleased to announce our second PRTG Sensor Contest winner: The Startup SM!GHT. As an EnBW startup, SM!GHT was founded at the company's innovation campus in July 2014, and has developed Germany's first smart streetlamps. We'll let these Smart City pioneers, whose products have now been installed in 12 countries, speak for themselves:
Everybody who ever worked for any company knows that communication between sysadmins and non-techies can sometimes be tricky. This is usually not due to the admin, but to misunderstandings in communication. Especially for new non-IT employees, a visit to the IT department can be a difficult one – and it would be wise to observe the local language and customs – just as they would on any visit into alien territory.
Part 4 - Metrics That Matter: Memory Metrics for MS Exchange Here, in the fourth part of the series on how PRTG can help the Exchange Admin, we’re looking at more Metrics That Matter. This time concentrating memory specific counters – those concerned with memory allocation, consumption and paging.
We’ve already had a look at unusual data centers around the globe and also at data center concepts from big industry leaders like Apple and Tesla. Today we want to take a closer look at the differences between cloud solutions and data centers, because the distinctions and particular benefits aren’t always so clear.
If you’re using VMware and in particular VCSA 6.5, this will teach you how to monitor your VCSA 6.5 using SNMP and PRTG Network Monitor.
Since PRTG is running at my house 24/7, the question is 'what else can be included in the monitoring system in addition to my IT equipment (Fritzbox, different routers, switches)’. No summer is complete without a decent BBQ, and, for that ‘proper’ grilling experience, I use my 57” Weber Kettle and, of course, a water smoker for the so-called “long jobs” (ribs, pulled pork, etc.). In my case, a Smokey Mountain 57” from Weber.
In the 6th instalment of The Geek and the Sales Guy, our two likely lads celebrate the 20th anniversary of Paessler AG by incorporating some questionable musical interludes - all fully licensed of course!
20 years can be a shockingly long time. Take a look at our daily routine – of all the things that we do every day now, what was around 20 years ago? No smartphones or Facebook (people actually still read newspapers!), no streaming, and only a very, very slow internet connection. A lot has happened, and although we celebrate our proud, 20-year-old company’s anniversary this November, that doesn’t mean that the PRTG Network Monitor, for which the name Paessler is now known around the world, was also around 20 years ago. But let’s take things one at a time.
This is not yet another article on why the cloud is great and why you should move as much as you can to the cloud. Because that’s simply. Not. True.
We all remember how great we were in high school chemistry, of course. We know that Ah is the element of surprise, Mm is the atomic symbol for cookie and we can cool ourselves to -273.15 °C and still be 0K. But this doesn’t help very much in the world of computers and internet, does it? So our great team came up with a newly developed overview on how to illustrate the most relevant terms and terminology of system administration. Categorized in the groups:
