PRTG app for desktop is an alternative interface that you can use to connect to one or several independent PRTG core servers or PRTG Hosted Monitor instances to configure your setup, view monitoring results, and keep an eye on your network. It is a cross-platform application for fast access to data and monitoring management.

PRTG app for desktop natively includes most PRTG functions. For a few options, PRTG app for desktop opens an external browser window using your default browser, for example, for system setup.

PRTG app for desktop currently has two license types: PRTG app for desktop and PRTG MultiBoard.

To use PRTG app for desktop, download and install it on your Windows, macOS, or Linux system.
