Wanstor & PRTG LAN Monitoring Tools

With Wanstor and PRTG LAN monitoring tools, IT teams can keep track of their entire local network, including workstations, routers, switches and servers or printers.

Wanstor and PRTG monitors your LAN and sends notifications about connection problems, limited availability, or overloaded servers straight to the IT team so proactive programmes of work can be put in place to fix network issues before they become mission critical.

Many IT administrators have yet to set up monitoring for their LAN networks - with disastrous effects. When problems occur, it often takes a long time to find the bugs behind them. This costs both time, money and peace of mind for the IT department.

Wanstor and PRTG LAN monitoring tools help IT departments to keep track of their entire local network, including workstations, routers, switches, servers and printers. PRTG monitors your LAN and sends notifications about connection problems, limited availability, or overloaded servers. The LAN tools use SNMP, Packet Sniffing and NetFlow for monitoring the LAN.

SNMP is used the most. It is easy to set up and requires only a minimum amount of bandwidth and CPU. Individual data packets can be analyzed using Packet Sniffing, while NetFlow technology is used for the monitoring of Cisco devices. Pre-defined sensors can also be used immediately in PRTG for other Flow technologies, such as IPFIX, sFlow and jFlow.

The five elements which should always be monitored on the LAN are:

Workstations: In many sectors, employees need high-performance workstation computers, such as those used for video or 3D processing. Workstation functionality is crucial to employee productivity. The LAN networking tools we provide enable IT administrators to have one joined up view of network performance from the hard disk to the CPU.

Routers: All network data passes via routers. They are the hubs of the LAN, and must be monitored. The sooner IT administrators see routers overloading, the quicker they are able to take countermeasures. PRTG monitoring tools enables IT administrators to keep updated on router status.

Switches: As distribution nodes, your switches are under extreme pressure. All it takes is one single switch to overload for the entire LAN network to suffer. Wanstor and PRTG monitoring tools help the IT department to keep sight of their switches and take action if a switch overloads.

Server: PRTG monitors all kinds of hardware and servers. It supports all major manufacturers like Cisco, HP, Oracle or Dell. Whether database, mail, or web servers: PRTG gives an uninterrupted overview and total control so servers can run both smoothly and flawlessly. All monitoring tools have in built alerts so if something is going wrong with a server IT administrators will know immediately.

Bandwidth: Do you know how much network bandwidth you have? Which devices and applications need extra bandwidth? With Wanstor and PRTG, IT administrators can quickly and easily see how much bandwidth is being used across their network and on each different device so plans can be put in place if certain network traffic behaviours keep occurring.

The benefits of partnering with Wanstor and PRTG for LAN monitoring include:

  • Stronger alignment between IT and the business: changing IT from a cost centre into a true business enabler.
  • Accessibility: Your LAN network should be completely operational at all times. Wanstor and PRTG enable businesses to monitor the uptime of their network 24/7 by using SNMP Uptime Sensors.
  • Security: Firewalls are attacked countless times each and every day. IT administrators need to be notified immediately if a firewall is down. Wanstor and PRTG Ping-Sensors indicate the accessibility of firewalls in real time. Should your firewall crash, you'll immediately receive an SMS, e-mail, or other type of push notification.
  • LAN Performance: If your company is experiencing continuous growth, an increase in employees leads to a greater amount of traffic and more devices to support. If your network is not ready for increased traffic this can result in bottlenecks and poor network performance. With PRTG, you can monitor devices comprehensively with just one central tool, such as the SNMP Hardware Status Sensor.
  • Centralised Tooling: The proper functioning of your Local Area Network depends on many different devices. With PRTG and Wanstor, you get access to a central, professional network monitoring tool with which you can use to monitor your LAN as well as your entire network.
  • Clear overview: Your PRTG and Wanstor dashboard and app immediately let you see what’s working - and what’s not. And thanks to the customizable alarm feature, you’ll receive prompt alerts should anything go wrong.
  • Prompt alerts: When problems happen in the LAN, the alarm feature alerts IT administrators quickly to exactly where problems are occurring meaning corrective action can take place straight away before the problem becomes mission critical. The alerting and alarm system notifications are sent by SMS, e-mail, or a free push message to Android or iOS devices.
