Don't let monitoring your network tie you to your desk! With PRTG for iOS, your network monitor is where your iPhone is. PRTG for iOS is an app for network administrators using the PRTG Network Monitor software to monitor and administrate their network. PRTG for iOS is a free app to have your entire network monitoring environment always with you. Your iOS device requests the monitoring data directly from your PRTG server(s) and displays it in the well-known iOS way. You can also perform several actions which you know from PRTG's Ajax WebGUI.

As of iOS 7, the app can check one or more PRTG servers in the background. It will notify you if something goes wrong in your network and you can call the affected sensor directly form your device's home screen to view details about the alarm.

The features include:

  • Multiple accounts support to query different server/login combinations. Switch easily between different accounts to quickly view monitoring data of several installations and/or accounts.
  • The app can check all accounts, or only specific ones, automatically in the configured polling interval and notify you in your device's status bar whenever there are alarms for one of them.
  • Configure when you want to be notified: when Alarms > 0, or when there is a certain number of new alarms, or when alarms count raised since last check. Configure notifications via the system status bar with ringtone and/or vibration (triggered for new notifications). You can exclude "Warning" or "Unusual" states from alarms count, and set up notifications based on priority.
  • PRTG for Android works with your PRTG core server to show you your device tree, sensor lists, sensor data, etc., in an Android familiar way. You can add sensor gauges as well as the global sensor status as widgets to your home screen. The data display automatically adapts to your screen size, so you can see as much information as possible at a glance.
  • Many features of PRTG's web interface are available to perform actions with the app: acknowledging alarms, pausing and resuming monitoring, setting priorities and favorites, running device auto-discovery, scanning the network status instantly, etc. With QR code scanning, you can jump directly to sensor.
  • The app provides additional network tools such as ping, traceroute, DNS, raw HTTP, and MAC address lookups. You can use these tools also without connecting to a PRTG server.

In order to use PRTG for Android (except for the additional network tools), your core server must be reachable from the network your device is connected to. For further information and the download link, please see section More below.
