  • As a sysadmin you already have a partly annoying life. Requests like "Is the internet broken?" are completely normal; and if one asks such questions as "Why is the Internet slow?", you don't mind it at all anymore. A popular lay instrument for the determination of "how slow the internet is today" are "internet speed tests", which exist in plentiful quantities but whose quality varies enormously...

  • Messenger Apps are an integral part of our lives. However, it is very difficult to say which messenger service is used by which types of people. Not every pimply teenager has Snapchat on his phone, and not every cynical data security skeptic communicates exclusively via Threema. There is a wide range of services available today, many of which combine an appealing design with the promise of prot...

  • Emergency, maximum velocity! What sounds like a good request if your submarine is under attack does not apply for IT emergency issues. IT emergencies are the worst case in an admin's daily routine. Blessed is the admin who is in possession of a structured and well-planned IT contingency plan.

  • If you're a system administrator, there has probably been some point, whilst automating some or other task, that you've stopped for a second and asked yourself: "Wait, am I automating myself out of a job?" And, perhaps then your mind started drifting a little further down the road: What about Machine Learning? What about the much-vaunted Artificial Intelligence that seems to be merely years awa...

  • In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), everything that can be networked and monitored in a meaningful way is connected to each other. The basis for all this is usually the mobile network. Although they provide good coverage, WLAN, Bluetooth and the like are not suitable for sporadically sending a small amount of data over many miles. LPWA is the remedy. In this article, we explain exactly ...

  • The Internet of Things represents an interesting new phase for end users, network admins and organizations. It promises to launch a complete new era in network monitoring, where the number of things that are connected to the network and the amount of data they generate will grow exponentially. This is the third part of our IoT series, with which we provide an overview of the areas of our daily ...

  • Right at the beginning of the second quarter of 2018, Elon Musk's Tesla Cabriolet broke the 25,000mph speed mark. That's pretty much the maximum speed the Roadster can reach in space on its orbit around the sun. This measurement, along with other data from the Tesla, has been continuously transmitted from space since February 6, 2018 by our PRTG Remote Probe.

  • Anyone - even users with zero networking experience - can run a traceroute. All you need is a command prompt and a destination device. Yet, despite how easy it is to use, its results are often misunderstood. I once heard a story of a junior network administrator adding up the values for each hop over an entire traceroute report, and then comparing the summed-up result with the result of a ping....

  • We at Paessler are happy to help voluntary institutions and initiatives on a regular basis and it is a great pleasure to support the National Museum of Computing in the United Kingdom with a sponsorship of so-called “Relaxed Openings”. The aim of this sponsorship is to enable children with autistic disorders to visit the museum without stress and fear.

  • Last weekend, a good friend of mine had a massive data loss. His data is stored conscientiously on a fail-safe NAS system. An additional standby disk is even available for seamless replacement in the event of a hard disk failure. Nevertheless, his NAS was not available when trying to access it. A ping of the device was possible, but any attempts to access the folder structure led to error messa...

  • Bonnie and Clyde. Salt and pepper. Peanut butter and jelly. Some things fit so well together that it is almost impossible to separate them when talking or thinking about them. And so it is with ping and traceroute. Whether you are a network n00b or a veteran administrator, ping and traceroute are probably your first two ports of call when troubleshooting network connectivity or latency issues....

  • What constitutes the office of the future? This is something we would like to explore in this article, which deliberately places itself in a line with the many other articles that we publish on the subject of IoT. Because IoT is not only a detached concept of how an intelligent house should look like; IoT encompasses almost every area of our lives and therefore also our jobs.

  • Network mapping tools play a crucial role in all network environments, since they help administrators stay on top of things. For instance, they provide basic information on which devices are on the network, what their addresses are, which components they directly communicate with, which communication methods they use and much more. Consequently, an up-to-date and detailed network map is indispe...

  • All these Spectre and Meltdown security risks remind me of Bill Maher jokes: you don’t know if you get them, but at least you know you’re not laughing. Maybe it’s not as dangerous as everyone thinks. Or maybe it is? What we do know is that there are now almost 140 different malware samples trying to exploit the Meltdown and Spectre processor gaps. It’s hard to determine whether this has led to ...

  • Not winning a contest sucks. This whole "it's not about winning" thing is a lot of nonsense. However, if participants receive a separate prize after a contest because of special creativity, then they really deserve it.  Today we would like to introduce 3 participants of our Sensor Story Contest, who were not among the original winners, but whose creativity, technical know-how and detailed docu...
