Maybe one of the first issues you think about as a system administrator is a bandwidth bottleneck, because limited performance of applications on the network may indicate a lack of available bandwidth.

Now that we're well settled into our brand new office, it was time for a housewarming party to remember.

For those who follow us on?Social Media?or have visited our?Career?page, it may come as no surprise: we at Paessler love food. And since we moved into our new?headquarters, we've got a new way to enjoy even more food: Food Trucks! It seemed only appropriate to combine this passion with PRTG.
