We at Paessler are not under suspicion of being particularly reluctant with interactive advertising and social media campaigns. For this year, however, we have come up with something very special. Spoiler alert: We're giving away a couple of PS4 Pros, iFixit Kits and, of course, a bucketload of PRTG swag...

So, what do you have to do?

🐢 PRTG Network Monitor has always been used in ways that we would not have originally expected. PRTG was used to monitor mailboxes, a prawn farm and numerous snake terrariums. And turtles - let's not forget about the turtles...
Our users have already surprised us countless times with particularly imaginative maps and creative hardware ideas to complement their monitoring; and as far as sensor usage is concerned, we have also been thrilled on several occasions.   

😏 That's why, once again, we're asking you the following questions:

  • What was your most unusual monitoring scenario for PRTG? #monitoringscenario
  • Who has the prettiest maps? #prettymaps
  • What's the craziest custom hardware you've integrated? #customhardware
  • What rare sensor types are you using and what makes it special? #sensortypes

And what's in it for you?

🕹️ Now, let's get down to business. We're raffling one PlayStation 4 Pro, 3 iFixit Kits and a number of PRTG goodies for each of the above disciplines.

All that could be yours:


 Sound good? We thought so. Here's what you'll have to do until March 31, 2020

  • Answer at least one of the questions above in a creative and insightful way. Oh, some pictures won't hurt your chances, too...
  • You can participate in as many disciplines as you wish
  • Post it on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn using #2020PRTGOlympics as well as the respective discipline's hashtag and tag us (our profiles are linked above)
  • You can also participate on Spiceworks by joining and posting in our user group. Just don't forget tagging us
  • An independent Paessler jury will "harshly" judge each and every submission and declare the winners on our channels soon after the competition has ended

Think you got what it takes? No more words then. Get busy!
