Does Netdata have any limits to the number of metrics that can be monitored on a device?
No, Netdata always offers unlimited metrics, no matter the plan or offering you use. We strongly believe that there should be no compromises on being able to visualize your infrastructure metrics.
Is Netdata more cost-effective than PRTG for comprehensive monitoring?
Netdata offers significantly more value in terms of the cost you are paying for comprehensive monitoring, offering a wide range of features without charging per metric. While PRTG’s initial cost is lower, its sensor-based pricing model and focus on network monitoring can limit broader system visibility, making Netdata a more economical choice for extensive monitoring needs.
How does the data granularity and collection in Netdata compare to PRTG?
Netdata offers per-second granularity for all metrics, providing detailed insights for in-depth troubleshooting. PRTG typically scans at 1-minute intervals, which can be adjusted down to 30 seconds, but this is less granular compared to Netdata’s high-resolution data collection.
Which offers a broader range of integrations, Netdata or PRTG?
Netdata provides over 800 integrations, offering comprehensive monitoring capabilities across various systems and services. PRTG also supports a wide variety of sensors for different services but may not match the extensive range of integrations available with Netdata.
How do the machine learning capabilities for anomaly detection in Netdata compare to PRTG?
Netdata uses unsupervised machine learning for anomaly detection across all metrics, enhancing proactive issue identification. PRTG does not have native machine learning capabilities for anomaly detection, relying more on traditional threshold-based alerts.
Does Netdata offer services to help customers migrate from PRTG?
