Planning an Installation With Hundreds of Sensors or More?

The maximum number of sensors you can monitor with one installation of PRTG mainly depends on the monitoring technology and the monitoring intervals you use. In general, we recommend that you use a dedicated physical machine to run both the PRTG core server and PRTG remote probes. For more information, please see section Detailed System Requirements.
