Stable Release PRTG Version 17.4.35: New Interface, New Functions
The paint has dried and we’re happy to officially announce that the new PRTG Version 17.4.35 has been released as stable.
With this newest version of PRTG you get the same proven monitoring solution for your business, but with a modern and up-to-date interface. The navigation is tidied up, more intuitive, and the design has a cleaner look for all kind of displays and devices. We also implemented one of the features our users asked after the most: a dark theme. So besides the original standard theme, the new version of PRTG contains a dark one! We hope that you will familiarize yourself fast with the new PRTG interface. Experience has shown, that new interfaces might take some time getting used to. However, we're sure that you’ll soon enjoy the modern look, and that you will appreciate the improved usability.
Besides the new interface, we are further enhancing the NetApp monitoring capabilities of PRTG: you are now able to monitor SnapMirror relationships with PRTG and the new NetApp SnapMirror sensor. We also improved the PRTG internal sensor creation process to speed up things. You will especially benefit from this improvement when adding many sensors at once. Finally, we have significantly enhanced the way PRTG creates SNMP Library sensors from an imported MIB: it will now automatically create SNMP sensors of suitable types with up to 10 channels each. Adding custom SNMP sensors is much easier, because you do not have to enter the OIDs manually anymore to start monitoring, but just select desired items from an OIDLIB in the PRTG web interface.
And the new stable release is also the perfect time to take a look at your maintenance. Renewal, please? Of course, we also release the current version for PRTG in the cloud. But as the roll-out happens in stages, it could take some days until you can enjoy our new interface.
