Monitoring Servers – Steps to Go
- Add the desired device, for example, your HP ProLiant server, to PRTG (e.g., via the button Add Device on a group’s details page).
- Then add a corresponding System Health sensor to this device (e.g., via Add Sensor on the device’s details page).
- The channels showing the desired information will be created automatically at run-time, depending on the available measurements reported by your devices, for example, temperatures.

Monitoring Server Room – Steps to Go
- Make sure you have converted the needed MIBs to OIDLIB files and saved them in the snmplibs sub folder of your PRTG program directory
- Type in a suitable name (e.g., PCMessure) and use the device’s IP address in the settings. You can leave the other settings unchanged.
- Then click on Add Sensor on the device’s details page and select the sensor SNMP Library (to find it easier, filter for SNMP as used technology) with Add This.
- A popup will appear where available library files are listed. Choose the library that you have created from the MIB and confirm with Ok.
- Then choose the sensors you want to monitor by clicking on the corresponding check boxes and confirm it. PRTG will usually create several sensors, one for each individual OID.
