More Alluvio AppResponse Cons →

"In our organization, we encounter performance issues with our PRTG probe service. I saw documentation from the vendor or Paessler mentioning that there are limitations for WMI sensors. Other than that, we are okay with PRTG.""More training videos for installing and configuring this software would have been nice, especially when working with a lot of devices.""PRTG Network Monitor can improve by having better integration with devices.""There is room for improvement in this solution for the performance and third-party monitoring protocols. They need to be updated to the latest ones.""This solution is a good product so far, but I haven't been using it long enough to know how it could be improved.""Its price can be better. Its price is a problem for us because it is in dollars, and there is a high conversion rate. In terms of new features, it can have BGP monitoring. It should also have a dashboard and maps editor.""The technical support service should be improved.""PRTG's documentation could be improved."
