System Requirements

In order to install and work with PRTG Network Monitor you need:

  • A PC, server or virtual machine with roughly the performance of an average PC built in the year 2007 or later.
  • Operating system Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 2008 (32-bit or 64-bit).
  • Web browser to access the web interface (Google Chrome 3 is recommended; Firefox 3.5, Safari 4, and Internet Explorer 8 were also tested).

For more detailed information and if you plan a larger installation see Detailed System Requirements.

Planing an installation with hundreds of sensors or more?

As a rule of thumb an average PC/server built in the year 2007 or later should be able to monitor 1,000 sensors with ease (some exceptions for SNMP V3, WMI and packet sniffing apply).

For larger installations please refer to our knowledge base article "Planning Large Installations of PRTG Network Monitor 7":
