PRTG: equipment dependent on a parent

Introduction

PRTG allows you to create dependencies between multiple devices. This allows in case of failure of a device to pass the others automatically paused. This parameter can be used with servers and a switch.

In this tutorial, we will use it to bind a server to a database instance. If on a server, there are several Oracle / SQL Server instances, it is not possible to supervise them on the same device, because the connection information to the instance (credential/ port ….) is linked to equipment.

Prerequisites

  • Have created and configured the parent device as well as the sensors.
  • Create the equipment linked.

Configuration of dependent equipment

1. On the equipment, click Settings 1 .

Select parent

4. Click Save 1 to save the dependency link.
Save

5. The addiction is added. It is visible in the summary of parameters 1 .
dependency added

Conclusion

The use of the dependency of a parent makes it possible to set up in PRTG a separation in the physical supervision of the server and the software part.

It is necessary to arrive associated equipment as a service and not only like a computer or a material.
